Countless acres were scorched after this fire blazed across property located along Rose Branch Road in Wheeling around 4:30 p.m. Aug. 24. Kenny Bishop, who owns the land, said he was welding the frame for a new structure when he realized sparks had ignited a nearby patch of grass. A burn ban remains in effect in Fulton County.
