In San Benito, a grass fire sparks up twice near highway 83 on Monday.
Several acres were charred near Ed Carey drive and Paso Real as fire crews from Harlingen and San Benito rushed to the scene and were able to get the fire under control. In about an hour later the fire re-ignited sending the fire crews back to the same location to fight the flames. Authorities closed down the frontage road as a precautionary measure due to the thick plumes of smoke in the air.
