Posted: Updated:

Firefighters were battling a blaze in a wooded area off Old Fannin Road on Friday afternoon.

Skycopter 3 spotted the smoke around 5:00, so WLBT News alerted authorities.

The smoke and flames were covering about five to ten acres of land near the Barnett Bend and Laurelwood subdivisions. No structures appeared to be threatened.
