Just before 3:00 on Thursday, the Wax Fire Departments responded to the scene of a large brush fire in the 10,000 block of Peonia Road. Not long after arriving, Wax requested assistance from the Leitchfield Fire Department as one of the Wax fire trucks became mired in mud as firefighters fought the blaze.
The fire eventually made its way close to the roadway, and firefighters had to fight the fire from the road. Traffic control was utilized in the area.
At nearly the same time, another large grass fire, this one at Grindstone Road and Down School Road, was being fought by the Clarkson Fire Department along with the Forestry Service.
There were no structures damaged and no injuries reported at either scene.
