SAN ANGELO, TX – Grape Creek Volunteer Firefighters battled the wind and a grassfire near the intersection of Ballard Rd. and Pyburn Ln. Friday beginning before noon.
The blaze caused law enforcement to direct traffic on U.S. 87 N. because the windblown smoke was interrupting visibility.
According to radio reports firefighters had the grassfire under control and left the scene.
The fire rekindled mid afternoon and firefighters went back to the scene to knock it down again.
