Volunteer Fire departments from Roane and Rhea County as well as the Westel firefighters in Cumberland County, all responded to a mountain side blaze last night off of Page Road in the Mountain View area south of Rockwood. Officials say the fire started after a resident was burning leaves and it quickly spread up the steep terrain behind the home in windy conditions. Crews worked fast to cut fire lines to contain the blaze after it burned around 15 acres of land. The fire was contained shortly after midnight this morning. Firefighters remained in the area for the remainder of the early morning hours today to be sure nearby structures remain safe. No injuries were reported.
