Body found near Robertson County brush fire

CROSS PLAINS, TN (WSMV) -

A body has been found near the scene of a large brush fire Thursday afternoon in Robertson County.

The fire was reported before 3 p.m. near the intersection of Cedar Grove Road and Yates Road in Cross Plains.

When crews arrived, a man's body was discovered.

The man's identity has not been released, but the assistant chief of Robertson County emergency medical services said he is an older man who lives at a house nearby.

Investigators believe the man was overcome by smoke as a small brush fire he set in his yard grew out of control and spread into a neighbor's yard.

No other details have been released.
