Two acres burned Tuesday near Smith County church

Posted: Updated:
SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

A fire believed to have started two days ago flared up near an East Texas church.

Fire marshals say about two acres were burned today off FM 14, outside of Tyler, and just north of Holy Ghost Temple.

The Red Springs Volunteer Fire Department brought in a plow to put out remaining hot spots.

No  buildings were burned, but the fire did come close to several animal pens.

Officials say the fire may have started as early as Sunday, but flared up because of embers blown from burning debris.
