Beech Grove Fire Department Chief Jamie Gunter says a late Thursday afternoon fire damaged a bulldozer and also spread to nearby brush. Gunter said it happened at about 4:00 on property owned by Richard Lakey off of Farm to Market Road 1747 in the Indian Creek area.

Both the Beech Grove and Angelina River Fire Departments worked together to douse the flames and to keep it from spreading any further.

No injuries resulted and no other property was damaged. There’s no word on how the blaze may have started.
