The 110-acre Brown County, Indiana park fire has been contained by crews

A 110-acre wildfire in a Brown County state park that started Sunday night has been brought under control after firefighters from several volunteer departments and a state agency worked to cordon off the blazes.

Officials said the park remains open and visitors may continue to see some smoke until rain or snow extinguishes the last smoldering remains. No structures were damaged.

The fire started on the east side of the park around 5:30 p.m. Sunday in a remote area, far from any buildings. Firefighters from the Southern Brown Volunteer, Hamblen Township Volunteer, and Harrison Township Fire Departments, as well as Indiana Department of Natural Resources and conservation personnel, arrived at the site Sunday night.
