Fire crews were busy near Pauline yesterday fighting a blaze that scorched more than one hundred and 50 acres.

That fire started just before noon yesterday.

More than one hundred firefighters from six different departments were called to the scene.

It's still unclear what started the flames.
 
"Being in this season, where everything's so dry, it don't take a lot to get it started. As you're watching through the air, stuff's blowing half a mile with no trouble. It's just been a very trying afternoon for all of the firefighters."
 
Crews were able to get the fire under control in about two hours. No structures were damaged.
