International Paper Tree Farm Charred By Fire

A tree farm for an East Texas business goes up in flames, leaving at least 30 acres completely charred. It happened around 12:30 this afternoon at FM 3198 near FM 855 in Cherokee County. 

A passerby noticed the flames and told a worker at the International Paper tree farm who called for help. It took five departments to contain the blaze, along with a helicopter and two bulldozers from the Texas Forestry Service.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
