Martin County Brush Fire Contained

STUART, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say they've contained a 90-acre
brush fire in Martin County that forced the evacuation of a Stuart
elementary school.

The fire broke out around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday and quickly spread. Authorities say roughly 100 homes were evacuated, but residents have since been allowed to return to their homes.

Students at Felix Williams Elementary School were bused away soon after the fire erupted.
