Crews still battling blaze near Roan Mountain

Posted: Updated:

State and federal firefighters are continuing to battle a wildfire just a few miles outside of Roan Mountain, specifically on White Rock Mountain off of Old Railroad Grade Road. 

The fire broke out Sunday evening and so far has burned 20-30 acres of land in Carter County. Fire officials told News Channel 11 Monday morning that the fire is not growing. 

Fire crews are using several resources like a bulldozer to cut fire lines to prevent the flames from spreading.

There are currently no structures threatened and the cause of the fire is undetermined at this time.
