BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA (WFTV) – Crews continued to battle a brush fire Tuesday that spanned more than 2,000 acres near the Orange-Brevard county line, the Florida Forest Service said.

The blaze, which was sparked by lightning Friday, is burning in a rural area south of the Christmas neighborhood near state roads 528 and 520.

No homes were endangered, but residents in 11 homes were notified that they might need to evacuate should the fire move closer, forestry officials said Tuesday.

FFS spokeswoman Julie Allen said almost 50 people are involved in the effort.
