VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. —

A brush fire threatened homes in Volusia County Monday afternoon.

Strong winds made it challenging for firefighters to extinguish the 10-acre blaze, which burned in the Enterprise area.

Firefighters shut down Garfield Road while the fire burned.

Several fire units set up to protect three homes threatened by the fire, and the forest service used bulldozers to cut fire lines.

A helicopter dropped water onto the flames.

By Monday night crews had the fire 100 percent contained.
