Firefighters for the volunteer fire department in Harris County doused a grass fire in the I-185 median at the Harris County-Muscogee County line.

The fire was spotted by motorists about 3:45 p.m. as it burned a small patch of grass near the inside northbound traffic lane. The fire ignited just north of the Smith Road exit at the Harris County-Muscogee County line.

Fire Marshal Ricky Shores of the Columbus Department of Fire and Emergency Medical Services said no units from the city responded to the fire in Harris County.

Motorists said smoke from the fire limited visibility for some drivers in the northbound lanes.
