15 Acre Brush Fire Burns In Smith County

Smith County fire officials responded to a grass fire, Friday evening around 4:30 p.m., right off County Road 489, just North of Tyler.

Parts of that 15-acre stretch of land continued to burn Saturday night.  Fire crews from Lindale, Mineola, Texas Forest Service, Dixie and Red Springs worked to get the blaze under control, which was fueled by trees, brush and several railroad timbers.  Firefighters were able to keep the fire from spreading with a controlled burn within the area.

There is still no word on what started the fire.
