The fire started in the woods of Herman Brown Park around midnight. Firefighters had to wade through two bayous and use hacksaws to cut through greenery to get to the flames.
It took 15 firefighters and three pumper trucks three hours to finally put the flames out. Firefighters had to haul in long fire hose extenders to get water on the burning brush.
They aren't sure what sparked the fire, but they don't believe it was arson.
