Crews are still fighting a brush fire that has already scorched more than 4,500 acres of land in Pike and Monroe Counties.

Saturday marks the fourth day firefighters have been working to contain the fire in the Delaware State Forest.

According to officials, four buildings in the fire's path were destroyed. At least one was a cabin. There is no word if the other three were homes. No one was hurt.

A flight restriction is in effect spanning five miles from the fire and 5,000 feet into the air.

The fire sparked Wednesday and has been burning since.
