MILLINGTON (AP) - A brush fire near the Memphis International Raceway ignited several cars in a parking area during an event.

WHBQ-TV in Memphis reports 20 cars were burned in a field after the fire broke out across the street from the track during the Super Chevy Show event.

Fire crews responded around 4 p.m. and got the fire under control. Investigators say a grass fire caused the blaze, but crews were able to get the fire under control in about an hour.

There were no reports of injuries from the fire.
