Carter County Fire

Dozens of firefighters were called to the scene of a brush fire, along Highway 19E, just outside of Hampton.

Last word, the blaze is over 90 percent contained, with crews standing by handling flare ups as well. At least 2 acres burned…no homes were in danger.

For a time, a portion of Highway 19E was closed, as ash and other debris was falling on the road. 19E is back open again.

Crews from several communities took on the fire. The cause is under investigation.
