Several crews on scene of fire near Lake O' The Pines

Posted: Updated:

Several fire departments are responding to a fire that has rekindled in Upshur County.

According to the Gilmer Fire Department, a fire started just after 4 p.m. near the Upshur Landing boat ramp on Lake O' The Pines in Ore City.

The fire is burning in the woods surrounding the area. Firefighter Colby Henderson says the fire jumped a previous plow line made by the Texas A&M Forest Service. That plow line was made after a fire sparked in the same area within the past few days.

Ore City, Diana, and New Mountain Volunteer Fire Departments are on scene. The forest service has a unit en route. The containment status of the fire is unknown at this time.
