Fire burning on Angelina and Nacogdoches county lines
Tyler, TX — Fire-fighters are battling a blaze in deep East Texas. It's on the Angelina and Nacogdoches county lines. A temporary command center has been put up about 2 miles from this fire to help centralize fire-fighting efforts. Plenty of food was brought in by the Red Cross... as fire-fighters still battle this blaze... which, officials say has spread further into Cherokee County.
Officials say almost 5,000 acres have burned... and the fire's around 35-percent contained.
But Sherriff Thomas Kerss says surprisingly the morale is quite high for this fire.
