LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Investigators are looking into the cause of a blaze that burned nearly 22 acres on Saturday.

The West Carlyle and Shallowater Volunteer Fire Departments responded to a grass fire just east of Reese Center around 5:30 p.m.

The blaze ignited near County Road 6400 and 1300.

Deputy Fire Marshall Robert Loveless says crews on scene had the fire under control by 6:15 p.m.

Shallowater Chief Cody Buck said fire crews remained on the scene for a few hours after, prepping the area.

He said they wanted to make sure the fire would not re-ignite if the winds continued to pick up.

No structures were damaged and no injuries were reported.
