It took the Alabama Forestry Commission, four fire departments and tractor units from three counties, but a large brush fire in Autauga County is under control.
The crews were called to a 200 plus acre fire off Highway 82 near the Autauga Chilton County line. A homeowner came home around 3:00 pm Wednesday and saw the fire burning beyond his property. He thought it was a controlled burn. We he returned home from errands two hours later, the fire had spread towards his property.
