Firefighters from numerous departments, including Texas City, League City, Bacliff, San Leon, Kemah and La Marque responded to a brush fire burning on land near the intersection of FM 517 and state Highway 146 on Tuesday.

Heavy smoke obscured visibility for motorists along state Highway 146 and a small section of the westbound lane of FM 517 was closed to allow emergency vehicles a place to stage.
