HENDERSON, KY (WFIE) -

Fire crews in Henderson County say close to 100-acres were burned in a massive field fire Saturday.

Officials say one fire fighter battling that fire was taken to the hospital. He is expected to be okay.

Crews battled the fire for more than six hours.

They say once it started, it quickly spread to surrounding areas.

Fire officials tell 14 News they are still trying to determine what started the fire. 

Niagara Fire Chief Glenn Powell believes it could have been a small trash fire that got out of control quickly.
