Crews worked throughout the night to contain the marsh fire in the Hwy 90 and Savanne Rd area. At approximately 0030hrs this morning, the fire was deemed contained and crews switched from suppression efforts to monitoring conditions.


During last night’s efforts, no structures were endangered. There was and will remain smoke throughout the area as the fire continues to burn and smolder. People with breathing conditions should take necessary precautions to avoid the smoke.


Please remember 911 is for emergencies only.
