Brush fire near Riverview horse farm under control

RIVERVIEW – Firefighters battled a 35-acre brush fire near a Riverview rescue horse farm and subdivision Saturday.

The fire at 12611 Hayes Clan Road, which is south of Rhodine Road and east of Balm-Riverview Road, was reported about noon, according to Hillsborough County Fire Rescue.

Fire Rescue worked with the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office helicopter to drop buckets of water from a nearby lake onto the fire, said Fire Rescue spokesman Ronnie Rivera.

The flames were not a danger to the horse farm or the Colonial Estates subdivision, Rivera said. By 6 p.m., officials had the fire under control and were double-checking "hot spots." No one was injured.
