HUBBARD COUNTY - High winds likely re-ignited a rural Hubbard County debris pile Wednesday, threatening to send flames spreading across a grassy field.


The fire southeast of Dorset was called in shortly after noon. Several smaller water trucks responded to the field.

It appeared as if the landowner was burning logs. A deputy at the scene said it was possible the debris pile was burned yesterday and was rekindled by winds of 25 mph.
