BELLS, TX---Fire crews worked to control a grass fire in Bells this afternoon in the 900-block of Starr Road.

The fire started around 12 p.m. and Denison, Savoy and Bells firefighters arrived at about ten minutes later. They contained the fire quickly. No buildings were damaged, but 16 bails of hay were destroyed.

"At this time we do believe it is accidental fire, the owner of the property was preparing his garden for planting by burning out the weeds in his garden," Denison Fire Department Battalion Chief Keith Bates said.

Crews were able to put out most of the fire by around 3 p.m. this afternoon. They left a few bails of hay burning. They say the homeowner will continue to monitor them.
