Grass Fire Threatens East Texas Elementary School

Fireworks may be the cause of a two acre grass fire near an East Texas elementary school.   The fire started just before 2:00 p.m. Wednesday afternoon near Dixie Elementary School in Tyler.  Fire investigators say three juveniles were playing with fireworks when the fire started. Strong winds caused the fire to spread quickly, but fortunately no structures were damaged.   The Tyler Fire Department says the juveniles will not be ticketed.
