Wind-fanned embers fired into new woodland fires at the unauthorized dumping grounds in the rear of the county jail at 6 p.m. yesterday, sending Mauch Chunk Fire Dept. apparatus to the scene, along with rake-wielding forest fire fighting crews.

The blaze, which had its inception in that same area early yesterday afternoon, and which threatened to do property damage to row dwellings on West Broadway, broke out anew after high winds caused by the declining temperature.
