White City – Fire season isn’t supposed to start for another month, but local fire departments say they are already seeing brush and roadside fires starting up.

So far Fire District 3 has reported 11 grass and brush fires.  Fire officials say that’s a high number for this time of year.  Looking back over the past five years, with the exception of last year, we had only seen one or two fires of this kind in mid-spring.   Last year was the exception with seven fires by this time of year.
