Plant City, Florida -- Hillsborough County Fire Rescue battled a large brush fire in eastern Hillsborough County on Sunday.

When crews arrived on scene, less than an acre of a farm property on Swilley Road was burning. Fire Rescue says the area is mainly open fields and strawberry fields.

Some farm equipment was also destroyed or heavily damaged in the fire.

Crews were able to quickly contain and extinguish the blaze. No structures were threatened. 

No injuries were reported.

Firefighters also battled another fire on Half-Mile Road north of Plant City. Authorities tell 10 News that fire was the size of three football fields. It got within 150 feet of a house, but firefighters were able to contain the blaze before it could damage the home.
