Fireworks spark acre-long brush fire in northwest Houston, say officials
HOUSTON, Texas (KWTX) — A large brush fire erupted Friday night as a result of a fireworks display produced by Second Baptist Church, the Harris County Fire Marshal’s Office told KHOU in Houston.
Fire officials responded to the 3-acre brush fire around 9:17 p.m. near 29900 US-290 in the Cypress area.
Investigators told KHOU the church was putting on a fireworks display as part of their Fourth of July celebration when the fire started.
The fireworks sparked the grass in a neighboring field and when crews arrived on scene the fire was quickly put out with no injuries reported.
