Flames sparked near the Roberta road exit off of expressway 83 near Rancho Viejo around two in the afternoon.
Ten fire trucks from Brownsville, San Benito and Los Fresnos responded to the fire to help put it out but the winds did cause some difficulties for them. The frontage road was blocked off for drivers because the smoke from the fire was making visibility difficult. The fire was finally contained around 4 p.m. and the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
