The Sweetwater Fire Department is currently on the scene of two fires along Interstate 20 in Sweetwater. The department receives calls for both fires around 4 p.m. and dispatched one vehicle to each location. The fire shown is on the west interchange headed east. About half an acre has burned so far at this fire. The second fire was located east on I-20, in front of Rolling Plains RV Park. Less than a quarter of an acre has burned at the second fire. Both fires are small and are expected to be extinguished quickly. A wheel that came off of a trailer was the cause of both fires.
