Perryton fire destroys multiple structures

Perryton, TX - A large fire that destroyed three homes in Perryton remains under investigation.

The Perryton Police Department received reports of a grass fire at around six-thirty Friday evening.

Fire crews worked for several hours to contain the blaze that spread quickly and completely destroyed three residences, several vehicles and several acres.

Three other structures were also damaged.

"With further investigation we found out that it wasn't a cigarette flicked out of a car but a young boy playing with some matches that started the fire," Tony Hill, Perryton Police Department.

We're told some firefighters were treated for minor heat-related injuries.

There were no major injuries.
