UPDATE: Crews extinguish brush fire near Liberty City

Crews responded a brush fire Sunday afternoon near Liberty City.

The fire was located in the 22-thousand block of County Road 3105. Officials say the smoke from this fire was visible from interstate 20.

A man burning trash walked away from the pile, and that's when it got out of control. Winona fire crews along with Jackson Heights crews responded to the fire.

No structures were ever threatened and the fire burned about 1 acre of a heavily wooded area.

Officials say it could have been much worse had they not gotten to the fire as quickly as they did.
