Grass fire burns acre

About a dozen Clinton firefighters put out a grass fire that started around noon Sunday in a field behind Lefler Estate Apartments on Highway 65. Fire Chief D.L. Webb said the blaze began when a boy tried to build a campfire. The fire department used a tanker and a brush truck to put out the fire that covered about an acre. (Photo by EuGene Smith)
