Rubbish Fire – 3500 Block of Hardy
Shortly after 12:00 p.m. this afternoon the Abilene Fire Department responded to a structure fire in the 3500 block of Hardy. Upon arrival it was determined that this was not a structure fie, but rather a rubbish fire in the yard. The occupant was burning trash and the wind blew embers into a pile of tires. The tires ignited and heavy black smoke was seen coming from the area. There were no injuries reported and fire investigators issued a citation for illegal burning.
