NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE)
A tree touching a power line sparked a grass fire that destroyed two buildings in Nacogdoches County, Sunday. Two small outbuildings on a County Road 104 property were destroyed along with a travel trailer.
Appleby and Central Heights firefighters were able to extinguish the blaze before it reached two houses and a construction company shop. No injuries were reported.
It was a busy weekend for Nacogdoches County fire crews. On Saturday, both the Appleby and Garrison Fire Departments responded to a woods fire along County Road 168.
First responders said the 100-acre blaze did not threaten any homes, but several oil and gas wells in the area were in danger.
The Texas Forest Service provided two plows to aid in containment of the fire.
