Several homes in Fort Smith were threatened after a brush fire sparked near Clayton Court this morning (Monday Jan. 27).
Fort Smith Fire Department said they were able to stop the fire before it spread to the homes.
The call came in around 3:30 a.m.
Battalion Chief Mark Talley said when crews arrived on the scene firefighters say they saw both a car and bush on fire close to several of the homes.
The lawns of about six of those homes burned in the fire.
Crews were able to get both fires under control before having to evacuate any residents.
Authorities say they’re investigating whether the car or bush sparked first.
