Two Grass Fires Spark In Lubbock County

There were two small grass fires in Lubbock County Tuesday.

The first one happened at 113th Street and Martin Luther King Boulevard. Grass along the road caught fire around ten o'clock in the morning. The Woodrow Fire Department responded and put the blaze out before it could get out of control.

An hour and a half later another grass fire sparked, this one near Idalou on Farm to Market Road 400 and Highway 6282. The Idalou Fire Department has responded to several fires in this same area over the last several days. Fortunately, they've been able to contain all of them.

Lubbock Launches Fire Safety Campaign
"You're our first line of defense"... that's the message the Lubbock Fire Department is sending in an effort to reduce the risk of a major grass fire here in the city.
