Fire Threatened Homes in Bryan County

7-26-06 Several homes were dangerously close to a fire in eastern Bryan County today.

The Bennington fire chief says the trash accumulated on a piece of private property on Cain Street for some time. The pile and barn were consumed by flames within minutes once the fire broke out around one this afternoon.

A group of trailer homes are just yards from the fire. No other structures were damaged and no one was hurt. Bokchito and Bennington fire crews kept the fire contained to the barn and trash pile.

No word yet on the cause though firefighters say it looks suspicious.
