Crews on scene of Cherokee County pasture fire

Several fire departments are fighting a pasture fire tonight on County Road 4224 in Cherokee County.  This is in the Blackjack community near New Summerfield.

KLTV has a crew there now, but we are able to give you this early look of the fire thanks to some home video sent to us by Neta Kendrick.      

Neta tells us that even though firefighters are on the scene, there are members of the community also out trying to help fight it.

A dirt moving tractor has arrived there now.  Authorities are trying to dig a fire line to prevent the fire from spreading anymore.

This is a dangerous fire.  Less than an hour ago, neighbors tell us the fire got to close to a tractor causing the tractor to explode.

KLTV will have the latest pictures and video at and of course on KLTV 7 News at 10.
