Fire crews battle Waterville blaze

Posted: Updated:

Firefighters are heading back out Tuesday to deal with the aftermath of a forest fire in Waterville.

As many as 20 acres have already burned. Crews have been battling the blaze for hours. Two firefighters suffered minor injuries but were treated on the scene. They say they didn't plan to stay overnight, but the fire is contained.

"They did a back burn on it from the top of the ridge back, so there's no more fuel for the fire to burn," says Gary Underwood with the Johnson Fire Department. "And so we do have a lot of trees that are burning up there and we're going to try to put those out as best we can tonight. It's not really safe to be out in the woods."

No homes were threatened. They have no idea what started the fire yet.
