Trash fire spreads threatening homes

Trash fire spreads threatening homes

Lindale, TX (KLTV) - A 20-acre fire started early this afternoon after someone began burning their trash.

The fire happened near the 20000 block of County Road 4129 in Lindale.

Lindale, Red Springs, and Mineola fire departments worked the fire.

Since Smith county is on a burn ban, which forbids outdoor burning, the resident who began the fire was cited by the Lindale Fire Marshall.

No one was hurt, and the homes nearby did not have to evacuate.
