Submitted: Shelley Brown/Cumb. Co. Sheriff Casey Cox Wednesday October 19, 2016

The Cumberland County Sheriffs Office will be participating with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) for the 12th National Prescription Drug Take-Back event on Saturday, October 22, 2016. The Cumberland County Sheriffs Office is helping citizens to properly dispose of unused and expired medication. This keeps medicine out of the hands of someone who might abuse them while protecting the environment. This also helps decrease crime in our community and it is our belief that this event will help to save lives. The Take Back will be held at the Cumberland County Sheriffs Office, located at 90 Justice Center Drive, Crossville, TN 38555 (across from Cumberland Medical Center) on Saturday, October 22, 2016 from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM.

Scott Co. fire forces evacuations
WVLT Wednesday October 19, 2016

A wildfire spanning 175 acres in Scott County was so intense, that all nine fire departments in the county plus three from Morgan County were asked to respond.

The fire started burning around 3:00 p.m. Tuesday afternoon in the West Robbins community in the southwest part of Scott County, just south of Big South Fork.

Investigators said 12 departments helped contain and control the fire that at one point threatened four homes along West Robbins Road off of Bowling Road. The people living in those homes were evacuated but later allowed to return once the threat diminished.

The 12 responding departments left the scene by 9:00 p.m. Tuesday, but the Tennessee Division of Forestry stayed to monitor the fire that was described as under control.
