Crews contain grass fire on FM 2767

Two fire departments were called out to a grass fire in Smith County Thursday afternoon.

The grass fire was reported around 12:20 pm, on FM 2767 about two miles east of NE Loop 323.

Jackson and Chapel Hill Fire Departments are still on the scene trying to extinguish the blaze.

Someone had a brush fire that got out of control and burned about 5 acres before crews got it under control. Jackson and Chapel Hill Fire Departments are bringing in plows to help extinguish the fire.

Fire crews tell us, even though the ground is damp, people refrain from outside burning today because of the high winds.
