SIERRA VISTA, Ariz. (AP) - A round fired during a weapons training exercise at Fort Huachuca in southern Arizona has sparked a brush fire.

The Sierra Vista Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2bFxSMC ) that the brush fire was reported Tuesday morning and the Fort Huachuca Fire Department responded. The fire was contained later that day after burning about 20 acres.

Fire officials say a .50-caliber round used during the training is what caused the blaze.
