Firefighters stretched thin with another fire

SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - Firefighters already stretched thin in responding to multiple fires this week, responded to a fire off of County Road 397 Wednesday afternoon.

The fire was brought under control quickly and was contained to just a few acres.

Firefighters from Jackson VFD and several other departments responded to the fire, which was just miles away from Tuesday's massive blaze, also in Jackson's district.

Investigators believe the blaze may have started due to a fallen power line.
