WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) — A grass fire burning since Sunday has torched more than 100 acres in Williamson County.
The fire is centered near the intersection of Old Cox Pike and Zebe Lane near Fairview.
Crews with Williamson County Fire Rescue have been working with the Tennessee Division of Forestry to contain the fire using bulldozers.
Firefighters were initially dispatched to a possible 10 acre brush fire off of Zebe Lane in Fairview around 5 p.m. Sunday.
Due to the weather conditions, the fire spread quickly, according to a release, as the steep terrain of the area made it difficult to extinguish.
Crews had to walk the area and work the fire with hand tools due to the steep terrain.
An estimated 35 crew members worked the fire until 9 p.m. A drone from Williamson County Emergency Management Agency was utilized to survey the area and check the spread of the fire.
Crews were called back Monday morning around 5 a.m. after the fire rekindled.
The cause of the fire is believed to be from hunters who built a warming fire, according to Williamson County Fire Rescue.
Firefighters will continue to work until all hot spots are extinguished. Williamson County is still under a burn ban.
No additional information was immediately released.
