Illegal Burn Starts Field On Fire

An illegal burn gets out of control and starts a field on fire.  It started around 2:00 p.m. just south of FM 2813 in Smith County. That's near Gresham.   Officials say some people were burning branches and tree debris when it got out of control and spread an acre. The fire was so hot, the fire department had to call for the bulldozer from the Texas Forest Service to put out the blaze.   No one was injured in the fire, but a citation was given. Smith County is still in a burn ban.
