MCLENNAN COUNTY (September 18, 2013)—Firefighters from five area departments battled a 15-acre grassfire Wednesday in northern McLennan County that briefly threatened to spread to a building in which a variety of agricultural chemicals are stored.
The fire at one point threatened to jump a road and spread to the building, but crews were able to contain it.
The fire was burning off Leroy Parkway near County Line Road and a portion of Leroy Parkway was closed because of the blaze.
Firefighters from Mart, West, Elk, Ross and Elm Mott were fighting the fire.
The cause hasn’t been determined.
