March 16, 2018 – Volunteer firefighters responded to a wildfire on Wade Johnson Road in northeast Sequatchie County Friday afternoon, containing the fire without injury or damage to homes.

John Ozbek, who owns over 200 acres on the Sequatchie-Bledsoe County line east of Mt. Airy, said he mowed a fire break before starting a fire to burn brush off the land, but the fire jumped the fire break and got out of hand.

About 3 p. m. Friday he called for help.

The Dunlap Fire Department responded with several units, including a tanker, and contained the fire with no significant damage to property.
