Ruskin, Florida -- Multiple Hillsborough County Fire Rescue units have contained a 100-acre brush fire in the area of Highway 674 and 19th Ave. NE in Ruskin, just west of Interstate 75.
Hillsborough County Fire Rescue says the area appears to be a cow pasture. The cause of the fire is unknown at this time.
Currently no homes are in danger and the smoke is not affecting I-75. No injuries have been reported.
Hillsborough Fire Rescue says the fire spread to the north heading toward the Apollo Beach area and threatened some homes and farming equipment near The Covington Park subdivision, but it is now almost under control.
Crews continue to attack hot spots in the south part of the county near 19th Ave. NE. The Florida Forest Service is also on scene to help bring the fire under control.
