JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Firefighters were able to suppress a trash fire that went out of control burning two-to-three acres of land on the Westside Saturday, according to the Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department.

When JFRD arrived the fire had only spread to half an acre.

JFRD said Westside residents may be smelling the smoke from the fire for the next few days.

No further information is available aboutthe property that was burned by the fire.
