A person or a group of people started several grass fires near La Feria on Thursday.
La Feria, Harlingen and U.S. Fish and Wildlife fire units spent Thursday afternoon putting out a cluster of small fires up and down rural roads near FM 800 and FM 3067. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Investigator, Eliseo Garcia says a person or group set off the eight small fires but he is not sure whether if the flames sparked intentionally or accidentally.
No homes were in immediate danger because the fire broke out in a rural area. Investigator Garcia says about 1.5 acres of grass were burned and if you have any information please call the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service at 956.784.7603.
