Officials say once crews arrived at the scene one mile south of I-40 on the west side of the river, they noticed a 10×10 heavy timber and brush fire. Crews used hand tools and a floating pump from the river in order to provide water.
A fire line was cut surrounding the fire and two type 6 fire units and 14 fire personnel were at the scene. Officials don’t believe further resources will be needed to put the fire out. The fire is under investigation.
