COPY-Lots of smoke, but no more fire

HAWKINS (KLTV) - All that's left of the massive tire fire that began Monday night is smoke.

Hour after hour Tuesday night authorities from all over East Texas worked tirelessly, moving thousands of gallons of water from the Sabine river to quench the massive tire fire in Hawkins.

According to authorities, the evacuation placed on the area Tuesday will be lifted at noon Wednesday.

There is still no word on what caused the fire.
