SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - Fire crews responded to a report of a grass fire just before 11:30 Monday morning in Smith County at 18481 County Road 3186.

Fire officials arrived to find part of an 85-acre family-owned property on fire. The owner of the property, Drew Mitchells, was burning a brush pile when the wind caused the fire to jump across the road into the grass, says Jasmine Bracken who also lives on the property.

By 1:30pm the fire was out. Fortunately no buildings were caught in the fire and no one was injured.
