This same time of year, 2 years ago.. firefighters were trying to gain the upper hand against the devastating Possum Kingdom Complex Fire that tore through and destroyed homes and businesses near the lake
Tonight, a wildfire is burning there, just east of "Sandy Beach".
This time a fire at Possum Kingdom Lake is forcing folks to evacuate their homes along the Peninsula.
The fire started in a ditch on Frontier Road and then the winds carried the flames west onto Upper Burma Road.
The fire broke out about 4 pm Monday.
Right now several agencies are on scene.
So far, no one has been injured.
At this point no homes or outbuildings have been destroyed, but some are threatened by the fire.
