Fire sends ash into neighborhoods, cancels classes

Camilla-  Brisk winds sent ash from the fire all over Camilla. Large chunks fell like rain in the back yards of Hamilton Trailer Park residents.

Firefighting equipment from 11 departments lined Baggs Ferry Road and kept school buses from taking some students to classes.

"My mom was calling the school and they said that we have to stay at home so because the bus didn't come," said Jaciel Martinez, a neighbor.

Mitchell County Schools dismissed students early at 12:30 because there was no water pressure because of the fire.
