A wildfire has burned more than 30-acres in western Bay County.
The fire is located on St. Joe Company Timberland off Landfill Road about 3 miles west of Highway 79 in the Steelfield area. The fire was reported Wednesday afternoon. When Forestry crew arrived, they immediately began cutting containment lines. Investigators don’t know how the fire started, but dry conditions helped it spread quickly.
Currently, the fire is mostly contained, but Forestry officials plan to monitor it Thursday morning to make sure there are no flare ups.
