Scioto County brush fire still burning
(2007-10-16)
(WOUB) - Firefighters in Scioto County are still working to extinguish a large brush fire.

The fire started early Saturday morning along U.S. 52 in Sciotoville.

The Portsmouth Fire Department says the fire has spread about one mile so far and consumed roughly 40-50 acres of land.

Right now, firefighters are trying to prevent the fire from spreading to nearby homes.

A spokesman for the department says right now the fire is mostly contained but whether or not firefighters are able to eliminate the fire depends largely upon today's wind conditions.
