Thursday's grass fire comes as the City of Lubbock Fire Department begins airing television and radio ads to launch its safety campaign.
The ads read like this: "This is Mark Ethridge with the Lubbock Fire Department reminding you that the best way to protect your family and your home from grassfires and other wildland fires is don't let those fires start in the first place. Cut your grass and weeds close around your home so that they won't burn. Prune dead limbs 6-8 feet above the ground. Relocate your wood pile well away from the house. Keep your roof and gutters free from leaves and other debris. Remember, you're our first line of defense against wildfires."
From now on, you'll be seeing those ads run on Lubbock television and radio, urging you to protect your family during the statewide burn ban.
