Large grass fire destroys car, building

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Fire crews are at the scene of a large grass fire on County Road 766, just off Highway 351 north.

E-911 Director Jeff Presley says many firefighters have been called to the scene to put out the blaze. A Brookland firefighter discovered the fire and called it in.

Our crew at the scene says at least one car and a shed were destroyed.

Presley says to use extreme caution if you are in that area because of the number of firefighters called to handle it.
