ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Fire fighters from the Fuller Springs Volunteer FireDepartment battled a pasture fire in the Bald Hill area early Tuesday morning.The fire burned approximately 60 acres of land.

According to Fuller Springs Assistant Fire ChiefBobby Cranford, crews were called to a pasture off of FM 326 and an eggfarm road around 3:30 am.

"When we got here, the fire stretched about aneighth of a mile along 326," Cranford said. "We started by stoppingthe fire near the houses and road and then moved into the pasture."
