Fire contained before injury to stable and livestock

Jeremy Robshaw reported to Historic City News that an early morning brush fire in the 100 block of Greenbriar Estates Drive in St Augustine endangered several homes, a stable, and livestock at approximately 3:30 a.m. this morning.

St Johns County Fire Rescue and crews from the Florida Forest Service responded to the fast-moving brush fire that consumed an area originally estimated to be 8-10 acres.

Florida Forest Service personnel arrived on scene with two tractors. They established a fire line around the flames; bringing the situation under control, according to Robshaw.

Firefighters began an aggressive attack on the fire once they arrived — focusing on structural and livestock protection.

No structures were damaged during this incident, Robshaw reported.

The Florida Forest Service is currently investigating the cause of the fire.
