Fire Departments Battle Grass Fire

Tuesday, September 13, 2011 - 8:31am

Almost a dozen fire departments were called out to fight a massive brush fire in Northeast Hidalgo county this evening.

It happened just north of Texas road 186 and threatened a home located in the middle of a field in the area. Fire departments spent the evening battling the fire from every direction and brought in heavy duty equipment and trucks filled with water to battle the flames. Investigators say the fire was spread over 400 acres of land and there is no word as to what caused the fire, but maybe the dry and windy conditions may be to blame.
