NAVARRE BEACH — Navarre Beach Fire Department responded to a firework-related brush fire around 4 p.m. Sunday.

The fire occurred on a vacant lot on Arkansas Street on Navarre Beach.

Capt. Danny Fureigh said the fire occurred around the same location where a water plane had landed, causing some to believe the plane was on fire.

"It was all fireworks," he said. "They're starting a little early this year."
