AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) -

Amarillo fire crews are on the scene of a large grassfire on Airport Boulevard.

The fire is contained, but crews are still putting out hot spots.  

The fire went on for about three hours, and Captain Larry Davis says winds were making it difficult to battle the blaze.

Winds in the area are blowing around 15 to 20 miles per hour today.

14 Amarillo Fire Department Units and two Potter County Fire Department Units battled the fire just east of Rick Husband Airport.

Preliminary reports show the fire burned about 50 to 100 acres.
