March 24, 2011, 5:33 am
The Volusia County Fire Department spent much of early Thursday morning attempting to contain a brush fire on Kola Lane. The Crews worked to protect nearly a dozen homes in and around the area. One of the homes even need to be evacuated. The Division of Forestry cut fire lines and set back fires to keep the fire from spreading further into town. The good news is that the fire was successfully contained Thursday morning without any serious injuries. The fire damaged a trailer, a shed and two vehicles. Firefighters tell Fox 35 they believe a cigarette sparked the fire.
