Gregg County firefighters had their hands full with a big grass fire near Interstate 20. Just before 3:00 p.m. firefighters were called to a grass fire on FM 349 near FM 20-11 that was burning up around 10 acres. Crews from several volunteer departments as well as Longview rushed to the scene to stop the blaze before it could get to homes in the area.
Firefighters say it appears the blaze started from something flammable that was thrown from the roadway. No one was injured.
