Crews contain 'fast-moving' Spring Hill brush fire

Firefighters in Hernando County were able to keep a five-acre brush fire from damaging any buildings in the Spring Hill area Monday afternoon.

The fire broke out in the area of Barclay Avenue and Lawrence Street, just southwest of the Suncoast Parkway’s interchange with Cortez Blvd.

Firefighters described the flames as "fast-moving" and they called in help from the Division of Forestry.

By later afternoon, the fire was 100-percent contained.

The cause was not immediately clear.
