UPDATE: Roswell Contains Brush Fire off Jones Road
The fire burned through the night.
UPDATE, Sunday, Nov. 18, 1:34 p.m. - Roswell firefighters worked throughout the night and morning to contain a brush fire off Jones Road, said Roswell Fire Chief Ricky Spencer.
Nearby homeowners first reported the flames blazing through the brush in a straight line last night, but when firefighters arrived, they realized they wouldn't be able to reach the flames with their trucks.
Chief Ricky Spencer told Channel 2 the crews went in and were able to contain the fires covering three to five acres of land with the use of rakes and hand tools. The Georgia Forestry Commission also showed up late last night with a tractor to plow a fire break around the area on fire, according to what Spencer told Roswell Patch.
"Sandy Springs was requested to send up their ATV with water to assist," he added.
Roswell Fire still does not know how the fire started, Spencer said.
