Firefighters Battle Large Grass Fire

HARKER HEIGHTS (February 9, 2014) Firefighters spent much of the afternoon trying to contain a large grass fire.

The fire was reported off Evergreen Estates in Harker Heights around 3:00 p.m. Sunday afternoon.

Fire officials initially had a difficult time getting to the fire because it was on the opposite side of a cliff.

An estimated 15 acres were burned.

The fire was contained just after 6:00 p.m.

Officials said they plan to monitor the flames until Monday morning as the fire burns itself out.

Residents were not evacuated and no injuries were reported.

The cause is still under investigation.
