Anson grass fire #1
ANSON, Texas -

A grass fire south of Anson – in the vicinity of FM 2746 – is now contained after jumping a road and threatening two homes, pump jacks and cattle.

 It is unclear how many acres burned, but windy conditions made it difficult to fight.

Hawley, Hamlin and Anson volunteer fire departments have been working the blaze.
