BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, MELBOURNE (WESH 2 NEWS) – Crews made progress Wednesday as they continued to battle heavy flames near Titusville.

In a wildfire that broke out Tuesday and burned all night, crews held the line.

U.S. Fish and Wildlife firefighters used a Marshmaster, an unstoppable, amphibious tractor that can go into the most dangerous spots.

Video from Chopper 2 showed the swamp tractor heading deep into the St. Johns National Wildlife Refuge to help put a containment line around the fire near the junction of Interstate 95 and Old Cheney Highway.
