Wildfire contained in Tuscaloosa County

BROOKWOOD, AL (WBRC) -

A wildfire that burned 70 to 100 acres of land in Tuscaloosa County last night has been 100 percent contained. The fire broke out near Camp Cherry Austin Road in Brookwood last night.

The fire initially began Monday as a result of a debris fire, set by a homeowner, that got out of hand. Firefighters believed the 30-acre fire that burned Monday night had been contained, but sparks lit up again Tuesday, causing the wildfire.

Firefighters returned to the fire Tuesday around noon when the fire broke the containment, according to Coleen Vansant, a spokesperson for the Alabama Forestry Commission. At least 30 people battled the blaze. The worst problems firefighters faced were the terrain and the wind.

"It's in a very rugged terrain. And so you combine weather, topography and fuel and that's the magic ingredients for a wildfire," Vansant said.

The fire surrounded some new mobile homes that replaced homes lost in the April 27 tornado. No one has had to evacuate the area yet and no injuries have been reported.
