Colmesneil volunteer fire department responded to a brush fire down County Road 3200 near Colmesneil on Wednesday afternoon.

The cause of the fire is still unknown, but firemen spotted a few downed Entergy lines at the scene. The fire burned near an occupied house, but thankfully the quick action of Colmesneil VFD and Entergy linemen prevented the fire from spreading.

Entergy states that the brush fire off of County Road 3200 in Colmesneil was caused by a tree limb that fell onto some power lines, causing them to fall on the ground and start a fire. The lines will be repaired and the tree will be trimmed as soon as possible to prevent future fires.
