Amarillo, Texas - The brush chipping site in north Amarillo at Broadway & Hastings remains on fire this evening.

Fire crews were called out to the site around 2:00 Monday afternoon. They say a lot of smoke was coming from the fire, but the fire was contained and did not spread beyond the chipping site. No homes or structures were damaged or threatened in the fire.

The Amarillo Fire Department says fires like these are fairly common, and this is not the first time the brush chipping site has caught fire. Crews will continue to monitor the fire until it is extinguished to keep it from spreading.
