NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A fire broke out in Bellevue on Saturday near 7739 Charlotte Pike that began rapidly spreading before it was ultimately stopped.

The large fire developed into two different brush fires after the wind caused it to spread. The Nasvhille Department of Transportation and Tennessee Forrestry team were called in to quell the flames.

Within two hours, the fires were extinguished and firefighting teams worked to put out hot spots.

The Tennessee Forrestry team also helped prevent surrounding areas from burning or catching fire by dampening the area with water cans.

About one quarter mile stretch of Charlotte Pike was closed while the teams worked to ensure the safety of the area.
