At approximately 12:00 PM Hillsborough County Fire Rescue responded to a quick moving brush fire in the 2700 block of Jim Johnson Rd in Plant City. First arriving crews reported the brush fire to be quickly moving through a pasture behind several homes. Command quickly called for additional brush trucks and water tankers to respond to the scene, and The Florida Forest Service was called to assist with an additional brush truck as well as a tractor. Additionally, the Hillsborough County Sheriffs office responded to the scene with their aviation unit to assist command with a aerial size up and direction of the fire. It took Firefighters about 30 minutes to get the fire under control, and it is estimated to be approximately 10 acres in size. Firefighters remain on scene at this time to mop up hot spots. There were no injuries reported, and no damage to any homes. (Apr. 21, 2017) Video provided by Hillsborough Co. Fire Rescue
