The Harrison County Sheriff's Office has closed FM 449 from Bailey Road to Franklin Road to assist numerous fire agencies in fighting fires that were sparked in the area.

Sheriff's officials say there are more than 10 fires that appear to have been started by a truck towing a trailer with a flat tire and causing sparks to ignite the grass. So far, there are no structures involved in the fires.

No traffic except local residents are allowed in the area. We'll bring you more info as it becomes available.
