MOUNT HOPE - Four departments are on the scene of a brush fire in Fayette County.

Firefighters on scene say the fire happened a little after four this afternoon in Mount Hope behind the old bus garage. About two or three acres were burned. Most of the fire is contained and firefighters say this time of year it's especially dangerous to set fires during the day.

"Typically safe to not burn your leaves, or wait on a wetter day to burn your leaves or anything like that," said Mount Hope firefighter Brandon Sheets.

The cause of the fire has yet to be determined.
