LEHIGH ACRES, Fla.-- The Florida Forest Service is now blaming an 11-acre brush fire on an all-terrain vehicle, or ATV.

The flames started Sunday near the corner of West 16th Street and Rush Avenue, which is just off Sunshine Boulevard. The fire was burning near homes in the area, but firefighters contained the flames quickly.

It is unclear if charges will be filed in this case.
