East Texan Cited For Illegally Burning Trash

A fire got out of control, after Fire Marshals say they caught someone burning trash, illegally. Two fire departments responded to a trash fire off County Road 3111 in Smith County, just after 2 o'clock.   The Texas Forestry Service was called out to dig a plow lane. Investigators say the fire burned a quarter of an acre and got close to a nearby saw mill.  They say a 1982 BMW, that was being restored was lost in the fire. The property owner was issued a citation for illegal burning.
