Wildfire torches 150 acres near Harleton

LONGVIEW,TX (KLTV)- Firefighters spent 10 hours Friday in Harrison County trying to douse a blaze in an open wooded area. It started around 4-pm as three departments were called to a roaring blaze a mile east of the intersection of FM 3001 and Driskell Bridge road, near Little Cypress creek. Texas Forestry Service workers were called in and the blaze was finally contained early Saturday  morning, but not before torching around 150 acres. Investigators believe a lightning strike a few days earlier may have sparked the fire. No one was injured , and no homes were damaged.
