MADISON COUNTY, Tenn. - The Madison County Fire Department has been busy this weekend battling more than half a dozen grass fires.

Chief Eric Turner said this is the start of wildfire season, but fortunately none of the fires this weekend got out of hand.

Turner said he wants to warn residents not to try and put them out themselves.

If you notice a grass fire, call right away.

Turner said to never burn anything without first getting a burn permit.
