Fire crews arrived to attack the vegetation fire just before 10:50 a.m. The site is not easily accessible by foot, so officials have requested assistance from air tankers.

NBC 7 viewers reported seeing smoke near State Park Road.

No evacuations have been ordered and no structures are threatened at this time.

As of 6 p.m., the fire was 80 percent surrounded.
