CONTROLLED BURN NEAR LAKENGREN GETS OUT OF CONTROL

(Preble County, OH)--A controlled burn by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Tuesday just outside of Lakengren quickly got out of control.  The DNR was trying to burn three acres, but it expanded and forced the evacuation of residents like this one.  "There was a guy that came to our fron door and asked us to evacuate.  He said that there was a fire coming."  "I was nervous.  Fortunately, I know that we have a good crew.  They've been specially trained for these fires," said Bruce Terrill with the DNR.  Crews from several agencies eventually got the fire under control with no damage to any homes.
