Firefighters Battle Large Mulch Fire

It took several hours, but firefighters finally got control of a large mulch fire.

The fire started early Friday morning in Powell County, just off Highway 213. The mulch is stored in an old rock quarry.

The flames were so intense that people in Montgomery County could see it.

Firefighters pulled water from a nearby pond to put out the fire.

At this point, investigators think the fire started from the mulch heating itself.
