Firefighters Busy With Grass Fires

Hot and dry conditions across much of East Texas have been keeping area firefighters busy.

Wednesday afternoon, Huntington firefighters were called to put out a grass fire off of FM 844.

It's still unclear what caused the fire, but firefighters say this happens a lot during the summer.

"This is the prime time of year. We had one earlier today. Where it was at I don't actually know. The day before yesterday there was two or three. But it's all over Angelina County." says Huntington firefighter Luke Hatch.

Wednesday afternoon's fire covered less than one acre.

No one was hurt.
