ELIZABETHTON, Tenn. -

Carter County fire crews responded to a forest fire in Roan Mountain Sunday night.

Sheriff Chris Mathes says that fire is behind Old Railroad Grade Road.

We're told the fire was small and homes were at risk.

Fire crews got a line around the fire Monday morning to contain it.
