Kingsport New Year's fireworks spark brush fire
KINGSPORT, Tenn. - Kingsport firefighters responded to a brush fire near Industry Road just after midnight on Monday.
Senior Captain Jim Carter of the Kingsport Fire Department said the fire was most likely caused by fireworks the city authorized for its New Year's Eve celebration.
The fire burned a couple acres worth of grass and trees. No one was injured. A firefighter monitored the embers overnight to make sure they did not blaze up again.
