October 22, 2016

Firefighters from the Century Station of Escambia Fire Rescue and the Flomaton Fire Departmnet battled a wildland fire in a three acre wooded area of Field Road in Century Friday afternoon. The Florida Division of Forestry also responded, using a bulldozer to plow a containment line around the fire.

There were no injuries reported, and not damage to any structures.

Officials with the Florida Forest Service’s Blackwater Forestry Center are urging residents of Escambia and Santa Rosa counties to refrain from any outdoor burning for the next several days due to dry conditions and low humidity. photos, click to enlarge.
