Fire Spreads To Fence

A small fire got too close for comfort after flames burned a small portion of a backyard fence in Security Wednesday morning.

The fire started sometime after 5 a.m., possibly in an electric box, though the Security Fire Department says that is still under investigation. The flames spread rapidly to a nearby fence, burning a 20 feet by 10 feet portion of the fence.

The home is located on Corn Tassle Drive, not far from Powers and Fontaine.

We are working to get more information.
