Wildfire burns property east of Sebeka

Sebeka firefighters work to suppress the blaze near Bunny Hill Road.

A wildfire burned property east of Menahga and Sebeka near Bunny Hill Road by the south end of Huntersville State Forest on Monday.

Sebeka firefighters were paged at about 1:35 p.m., and the ongoing fire calmed by about 3:50 p.m., according to Linda Lilly of the DNR forestry office in Nimrod.

The cloud of smoke from the blaze, just a few weeks after the Easter Sunday Jeep wildfire south of Nimrod, was visible from the north end of the city of Wadena.
