TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Authorities contained a raging fire that sparks at a Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office training facility Friday afternoon.

According to Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister, the fire broke out at the Walter C. Heinrich Practical Training Site in Lithia.

“Our Aviation Unit is dropping water and Hillsborough County Fire Rescue is also on scene and coordinating efforts,” Chronister said. “Our aviation unit continuously trains for events like this, they are in action now, dropping water, the winds have subsided slightly which will help with extinguishment efforts.”

About 30 minutes after the first reports, Chronister said the fire was “90% contained with an estimated 50 acres affected.”

“I can’t thank Hillsborough County Fire Rescue enough for the rapid response and unwavering efforts to extinguish the brush fire at our training site,” Chronister said. “I appreciate the partnership we share, great job, so thankful for all of the HCFR men and women!”

HCSO confirmed with News Channel 8 the fire was not part of a training exercise.
