Crews are monitoring a brush fire that broke out in Greenacres near South Saltese Lake Road around 5 p.m. Thursday.
Firefighters will spend the night building a line around the flames, and will begin mop up efforts Friday morning when they can see all of the damage.
The 10 to 15 acre fire was at one point threatening 10 homes, but Level 1 evacuation orders were lifted just before 11 pm. Officials say mostly brush was burning, which made combating the fire easier.
"It makes it a lot easier because once the fire gets in the tree tops there's nothing we can really do," said Guy Gifford with the Department of Natural Resources. "Once it gets in the trees we have to wait for it to come down to the ground."
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
