Brush fire contained

Sebring Fire Department Second Lt. Chuck Piper hoses down hot spots following a small brush fire Monday afternoon that threatened a home on Hawk's Landing Drive near the Harder Hall area. A fire official said it was fortunate that the wind was blowing away from the house. Units from the West Sebring Volunteer Fire Department and the Florida Forest Service also responded, but the brush fire was quickly contained with brush trucks and no heavy equipment from the Florida Forest Service was utilized.
