Fire near Whitehouse contained

WHITEHOUSE, TX (KLTV) - The Bullard Fire Department confirmed a fire about a half a mile west of 756 near C. R. 129, but says it is now contained. They think lightening might have started the fire sometime Sunday night.

A Texas Forest Service scout plane was flying over woods when they spotted it and called it in at 4:33 p.m. Monday afternoon. Whitehouse and Bullard Fire Departments responded to the fire, which authorities say took about two and half hours to contain.

The fire burned about one and a half acres. Authorities say the Whitehouse Fire Department will continue to monitor hot spots throughout the evening as well as tomorrow. No structures were threatened because of this fire.
