Amarillo, Texas - A semi-truck tire blowout sparks a sizeable grassfire Sunday in Northeast Amarillo.

The farmer whose land was burned at the North Loop and Whitaker estimates about ten acres were burned.

It took ten fire trucks and at least twenty fire crews to put out the flames.

Authorities say when the truck had a blow out, sparks flew off the road and the wind carried them into the field.
