Brushfire smoke

A brushfire on Nathaniel Mountain Saturday afternoon drew firefighters from 6 counties to battle flames that were reported consuming 50 acres.

The 911 call shortly after 1 p.m. was for Nathanial Mountain Wildlife Road off Grassy Lick Road.

Crews from Romney, Augusta and North River were 1st dispatched.

But within minutes, every other squad in Hampshire County was called in, along with 6 companies from Mineral County, 3 from Hardy, and 1 each from Morgan, Grant and Allegany County, Md.

Smoke was visible on the horizon across a wide swath of Hampshire County.
