Large Grass Fire in Grayson County


GRAYSON COUNTY, TX---- It was a busy day for firefighters in Grayson County. This afternoon a fire broke out at a grass farm near Denison. It started about 2 p.m. off Elmore Road. Firefighters from Denison, Savoy, Bells and Grayson County Airport firefighters responded.  

"The fire was basically controlled due to the topographical conditions. The creek bottoms and the tree lines slowed the fire down, but we did have one area that we had to aggressively fight," Denison Fire Department Battalion Chief Keith Bates said.   

Crews were able to put out most of the fire by about 4 p.m. and no one was hurt. They believe the fire was caused by a controlled burn that got out of hand. No buildings were damaged, but 50 acres of grass and some trees burned in the fire.
