Firefighters battle blaze in Long County

LUDOWICI, GA (WTOC) - A fire broke out Monday just outside Ludowici on Pearl Davis Road.

Nearly 10 acres burned and several homes were in danger as the fire burned closed to a heavily populated area.

Many still can't shake the memory of the fires that burned 4,000 acres a little more than a month ago, so they didn't want to take any chances.

Officials shut the road down, just in case of evacuations, but they didn't evacuate and were able to contain the fire in a few hours.

No word on how it started.
