Fire on Tradewind

Amarillo,TX - What was supposed to be a controlled fire burned out of control in East Amarillo Friday afternoon.

Around 2:30, crews from the Amarillo Fire Department and Randall County responded to this fire along Tradewind, just North of 46th.

The homeowner apparently lost control of the flames because of heavy winds.

Crews were able to put it out within minutes, but the fire had already destroyed much of the homeowner's back yard and shed.
