A large brush fire was reported by Pooletown Vol. Fire Department on Sunday evening just after dusk. The fire which was located along the banks of the Tuckertown Reservoir in Davidson County could be easily seen from the NC Wildlife boat access off River Road in Rowan County. Local residents identified the location as Bald Mountain which is a rugged undeveloped area that rises up from the waters edge. An active railroad line runs along the base of the mountain and damage to the tracks were undetermined. Photo by Jon C. Lakey, Salisbury Post.
