There was a potentially dangerous situation in Thomas County this afternoon as a brush fires erupted on a major highway.
Around 12:30 Saturday afternoon the Thomasville Fire Rescue responded to a fire off US Highway 84.
Once on scene, firefighters first calmed the fire burning the shoulder of the road, then attacked the flames in the median.
High wind gusts could have fanned the small fire into a larger one if firefighters did not get it under control in a timely manner.
There’s no word on what started the fire.
