Amarillo, Texas - Fire crews worked for more than four hours to put out a large grassfire in North Amarillo Saturday.

The blaze burned around 200 acres near blue bonnet. 11 Amarillo Fire and 5 or 6 Potter County units responded, along with three Texas Forest Service helicopters which dropped nearly three-thousand gallons on fire retardant solution from the air.

Several structures were threatened, but none were burned and no one was injured.

Investigators determined the fire was started accidentally.
