Wildfires keeping rangers, local crews busy

Written by

STATEWIDE - Wildfires continue to keep fire crews scrambling around the state.

State forest rangers and local fire crews have battled a number of fires over the past couple of days. Among the most recent of them brought them to Jim Pond Township in western Maine.

 

They also dealt with some fires over the weekend that were caused by branches rubbing up against power lines.

 

Although Tuesday's fire danger was listed as low to moderate, it is clear that it does not take much for the flames to spread once they get going.
