A fire broke out in Washington County Friday afternoon and burned nearly fifteen acres.
The State Fire Marshal's Office says the cause of the blaze was scrapping, individuals looking for pieces of metal and probably cutting it with some sort of heat.
Around 12:30, three Washington County fire departments and the Florida Forest Service arrived on scene in the Sand Hills area.
"For this fire to travel this fast and this quickly and this viciously, in these kind of fuels, the message is imagine what this could have done in a thicker more vegetated area," says Brian Goddin with the Florida Forest Service.
The Florida Forest Service uses bulldozers to cut out a fire line in order to contain the blaze.
"We must get out around the fire, and cut a ditch so the fire cant continue to burn so you basically remove the vegetation from where the fire is burning from to where the fires burning toward," says Goddin.
The fire is completely contained, and no one was injured.
