Mitchell County- Control burning in this cold weather can also be dangerous.

A burn in the yard of Tammy Sanchez on Honeysuckle Road in Mitchell County got out of control tonight, destroying this mobile home on her property.

Fortunately, the home was abandoned, so no one was hurt.

Remember, before you burn, you must get a permit from the Forestry Commission.

"The forester can tell them if there are wind conditions are favorable, if the humidity is favorable," said Jamie Sullivan with the North Mitchell County Volunteer Fire Department at Baconton. "They can give them a lot of information about the burn before they do it."

The North Mitchell County Volunteer Fire Department was able to get this fire under control and let it burn itself out.
