DENTON (CBSDFW.COM) - Fire crews are battling a brush fire at UNT’s Discovery Park, the university’s research and engineering facility.

The engineering building has been evacuated as firefighters attack the blaze, which has ignited a stack of nearby power poles.  Firefighters are using foam to try to smother the fire, and keeping an eye on the winds which is driving smoke toward the school building.  One person has been treated on scene for smoke inhalation.

According to Denton Fire, the fire is a couple of acres large and as of 4 p.m. crews appear to have it under control.  UNT’s Discovery Park is about five miles north from UNT’s main campus.
