LITTLE ROCK, AR -- About 30 firefighters battled a fire Sunday in Pulaski County. Crews say the blaze started in a shed and quickly spread, burning about ten acres of land and coming dangerously close to several homes on Barrett Road.
"Another ten feet, my home would have been on fire," said homeowner Lissa Parks, who rushed home after getting a call from her husband.
People in four homes had to be evacuated, including a disabled man.
"I was very concerned. I kept calling (my husband) saying are you sure I don't need to come to get (family) pictures. And we've got animals and stuff and I was worried about them," said Parks.
Volunteer fire departments initially responded to the fire. But it moved so fast, they had to call in the Little Rock Fire Department.
"Anytime you have a fire that is more than a couple of acres and you get the wind blowing like it was swirling and gusting, we are concerned," said Little Rock Fire Captain Edwin Wolf.
The fire caused about $16,000 dollars worth of damage. Investigators work to find out a cause.
