A Harrison County man is hospitalized Saturday after trying to extinguish a grass fire.

Three fire departments and the Texas Forest Service responded to the fire on State Highway 43, a mile south of Farm-to-Market Road 2625.

Officials say the fire was started by the man burning trash in an open barrel.

The man received 2nd degree burns to his hands and feet trying to stop the fire.

A small storage shed was destroyed and four residences were able to be saved.
