Weekend fire in Potter Township remains under investigation

A fire that scorched 18 acres in Potter Township on Saturday is still under investigation, according to the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.

Smoke still may be visible in the area as the site is not completely extinguished yet, spokesman David Yeager said. There are some smoldering spots remaining.

“Please don’t burn this time of year even with the forecast rains,” he said. “Wait until we are at full green up with tree canopies.”
