Several acres of field at the Sugar Grove Vineyards and Gathering Place went up in smoke after a fire raged out of control around 3 p.m. Friday. Eyewitness Mike Timmons said the fire was supposed to be a controlled burn to clear out small trees and branches. Winds in excess of 20 mph caused the flames to burn out of control. Smoke caused by the fire could be seen for more than a mile.
