Columbia fires blamed on fireworks

Jul 4, 2011 3:10:00 PM - thestate.com
Fireworks are suspected as causing two Columbia brushfires on the Fourth of July, according to Fire Chief Aubrey Jenkins.

Both fires occurred mid-afternoon Monday, one in the 8100 block of Garners Ferry Road, not far from Old Hopkins Road, and a second along railroad tracks in the Eau Claire neighborhood off North Main Street.

No houses or structures were threatened by the fires and both were under control within the hour, Jenkins said.

Conditions are dry, authorities warn, and revelers should be careful.
