MURFREESBORO, Tenn.-- The Murfreesboro Fire Department responded to a grass fire around 2 pm today at Stones River Battlefield. 

Rutherford County Fire and Rescue assisted in the response to put out a fire which damaged nearly five acres of land. At one point, the fire was moving so rapidly it burned through a cedar fence without causing damage. 

Investigators believe a cigarette which was tossed out started the fire. No injuries were reported, though four electric poles were damaged.
