Firefighters battling brush fire in Carter County

On April 12 at approximately 1:10 p.m., firefighters responded to Woodville Road in Brandywine for the report of brush fire.

Saturday afternoon multiple local fire agencies were on scene of a brush fire in Carter County.

Wheeling firefighters are battling a large, two-alarm grass fire that has spread from the Fulton Area to North Park.

Several smaller brush fires were reported throughout the county Thursday, officials said.

Dispatchers said the Wildland Task Force has been activated to help fight the fire.

A brush fire that started on Arnold's Valley Road has been contained, according to the Natural Bridge Fire Chief.

A Butler County dispatcher said there had been fires in Cranberry, Buffalo and Marion townships.

James Heaton with the Tennessee Division of Forestry spoke to us over the phone as he was on his way to the fire just before 4p.m. Because of strong winds, low humidity and warm temperatures, any fires that develop will spread rapidly.
