The Nettle Ridge and Magnolia Volunteer Fire Departments were assisted Saturday afternoon on Roy Golden Road by the Blountstown Fire Department, the Florida Forest Service , Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office, Florida Highway Patrol and crews from West Florida Electric Cooperative. Two separate grass fires were started when electrical wires fell to the ground after a power pole snapped. Strong winds were spreading the fires quickly. The Forest Service crew cut a line around the burned areas. WFEC crews repaired the lines and replaced the pole. Residents in the area were without power for a short time.
