"Bad Land "Fire Scorched 2500 Acres
The "Bad Land" and "Swamp" fires continued to burn Tuesday evening and there was no telling when the flames would die down. Firefighters worked around the clock, trying to put out the wildfires, that have burned around 2500 acres. Almost 40 volunteer firefighters from across Levy county helped to battle the blaze. The firefighters said they're not going home until the fires are out.
