Area fire crews battled a blaze just west of Lake Trammell on Wednesday when a fire began around 11:45 a.m.
According to firefighters, the dry conditions and rugged terrain made the fire very difficult to reach. The fire was contained at about 7 p.m. Wednesday evening.
Fire departments that helped to extinguish the blaze include the Sweetwater Fire Department, Roscoe VFD, Lake Sweetwater VFD, Maryneal VFD and Nolan VFD. Nolan County workers and members of the Nolan County Sheriffâ€™s Office also assisted with the blaze.
The fire was said to be started by a train.
