Volunteer Fire Departments Have Hands Full With Grass Fires

East Texas Volunteer Fire Departments were busy Saturday battling several grass fires.  The biggest burned 20 acres along the north side of Interstate 20 in Smith County.

Seven departments responded to the fire, which was fueled by strong winds.  Fire marshals said it may have started by a truck's wheel scraping the ground.  Firefighters responded to several other grass fires Saturday, including one in Whitehouse and Bullard.
