On the front lines: Firefighters battle Saturday grass fires

Corsicana — With temperatures hovering at 100 degrees and above, and tinder-dry conditions, firefighters across the county were pressed into service Saturday battling several fires. The drought index for Navarro County is reaching critical conditions, and winds can whip a small blaze into a big one in the blink of an eye. Exercise extreme caution with any fires this weekend.

Albums of photos taken at three Saturday fires are available on our Daily Sun Facebook page.
