Fire moves through E. Texas community

TATUM, TX (KLTV) - Some scary moments for an east Texas neighborhood after a brush fire spreads through a wooded area.

It started sometime after 11:00 pm Sunday in the Stewart community.

That's about 8 miles west of Tatum near County Road 2138.

We're told the fire burned about an acre.

Tatum Volunteer Fire Department and Elderville Fire Department were called in to help fight the blaze.

Bulldozers were also brought in to help cut a fire break to help contain the fire.

The fire was put out in less than an hour.

One woman says she was alerted about the fire when a neighbor knocked on her door.
