Brevard County Fire Rescue is working to take out a brush fire in Mims that has grown to 70-80 acres.

The fire is located near Hatbill Road and is moving to the north and west.

Fire crews say lightning sparked the fire, but rain is also making their jobs easier.

But it's difficult to reach the flames because they are in a marsh area, near the St. Johns River.
