Kunz announced that 5.359 of District Timberland went up in smoke and declared gloomily it makes you feel so no Pless to have so Many fires going on once. Before we can get one out another has sprung up. As an example of How for Estry workers were hopping last week one should look Over the weekly fire report issued by Kunz office. It showed that Florence county for instance had 38 fires that burned across approximately 1.080 acres. Hurry county had the most disastrous week. Report for county showed 50 outbreaks during the week which burned Over a fantastic total of acres but that s not All. Dillon county had 35 fires burning 520 acres.
