Brush fire raging on Veterans Pkwy.

Local firefighters and units from the Georgia Forestry Commission were battling a hot brush fire on Veterans Pkwy in Barnesville beginning about noon. UPDATE: At 3:15, the fire had jumped the four-lane and was burning off the northbound lanes just south of the Hot Shot store. Fire chief Steve Andrews was calling in additional personnel. Also, a hazmat drill set for tonight has been postponed until Tuesday due to manpower requirements at the fire scene. AVOID THE AREA IF POSSIBLE! The fire, located on the southbound side of the four lane just south of a church destroyed in the April tornado, was running out of control for about 90 minutes. Traffic on the four-lane was rerouted as firefighters battled the blaze.
