This fire has been contained.


Smith County fire officials tell KETK, they are battling a flare-up on CR 240 and CR 246 where several acres burned Thursday.

The rekindle began around midday on Friday, and has reached two acres by the time fire officials got on scene. Officials were not clear at the time exactly how much it had grown.

Authorities say the fire is beginning to jump the plow line around the blaze.

Several departments are on scene. No word on whether there are any nearby structures in danger, but there have been no evacuation orders put in place at this time.

KETK will update this story as the details come in.
