Numerous people selling firewood along busy roads

The cold temperatures are helping many people earn a little extra income. Numerous folks are selling firewood along Highway 280 and others areas and people are buying to keep their families warm!

Steven Overton has four more truckloads he hopes to sell during this cold snap. He sold every piece of wood in the back of his pick up truck Tuesday.

He says people selling firewood on the side of the road can offer cheaper prices to customers than a lot of stores... but it's competitive. Overton says numerous trucks have been lining up along Highway 280 ready to sell firewood.{} He says the going rate for a row of wood is around 50-dollars.
