Several grass fires Sunday afternoon scorch several hundred acres in two different counties.

The first fire sparked in Clay County along FM 1740.

We captures smoke from that blaze on our tower cam.

According to Dean volunteer fire officials, this black smoke is actually from five separate fires along FM 1740 and burned about 300 acres.

Then further down FM 1740 into Wichita County, fires continued.

In fact, many of the volunteer fire crews battling the Clay County grassfires joined the fight in Wichita County.

According to county emergency management officials, two blazes sparked along FM 1740, burning between 250 and 275 acres at Kimbell Ranch and Krumpler Ranch.

Since all of these fires started along the roadside, fire officials believe all were started by sparks from a vehicle.
