CLARKSVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Crews have contained a grass fire that burned about 70 acres in Johnson County.
Authorities say the blaze began about 1:45 p.m. Sunday when an overheated car pulled onto grass off Interstate 40 near Clarksville. Police officers say the car caught fire and the flames spread.
A Johnson County Sheriff's dispatcher said the blaze was under control, and that she hadn't received any reports of injuries. She didn't know if any structures had burned.
