UPDATE (11/12):
A brush fire has burned more than 400 acres after rekindling twice Monday morning.

911 dispatchers said that crews were able to clear the scene at around 1:30 AM.  That's more than 12 hours after the initial call.  Crews were sent back to Ingleside Road just before 2:30 AM and again at 5:40 because the fire had rekindled. 

A brush fire burns more than 30 acres in Mercer County Sunday.

911 dispatchers say around 1 o'clock Green Valley, Bluewell, East River, Glenwood Volunteer Fire Departments and the Division of Forestry responded to Ingleside Road near Bluefield.  Dispatchers say more than 30 acres of land has been burned and more than 10 hours later firefighters are still on scene.
