Firefighting grass fire

ABILENE, Texas -

A grass fire near Interstate 20 spread and caused traffic problems due to smoke – for a short while Monday morning – on nearby Business 20 west of Winters Freeway.

The fire was fought by the Abilene  Fire Department and Tye Volunteer Fire Department.

Business 20 and South 1st Street are the same road.

Although the fire approached a home, no damage was reported.

No accidents resulted as a result of smoke from the blaze, either.
