Grass fire lights up sky near Anton

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The remains of a large grass fire are smoldering in northeast Hockley County.

A landowner burned dozens of acres of CRP grass Monday night, November 9, to prepare the land for farming.

The controlled burn sent flames and smoke towering into the night sky, just south of Anton.

Volunteer firefighters monitored the blaze to make sure it did not spread to adjacent fields during the breezy conditions.
