Grass Fire Burned Out

A massive grass fire in Tyler has pretty much burned itself out, after destroying more than 40 acres of land on a family ranch.

The fire broke out Tuesday afternoon on Paluxy Drive at Cumberland Road.

Today, nearly 60 hay bales are gone. The machine likely responsible for starting the fire was destroyed. Firefighters say the equipment is used to roll hay, and it probably overheated and sent off sparks.

Fortunately, there was no damage to homes nearby, and no one was hurt.
