Grassfire in West Amarillo

Several acres on the south side of town are nothing but soot and charred grass this evening.

Crews just finished putting out the grassfire that broke out just before three on Tuesday afternoon near Soncy and I-40. Captain Bob Johnson with the Amarillo Fire Department says they don't know what started the fire, but they do know that no structures were involved.

The fire closed down part of the interstate near I-40 and Soncy, but it's back open now. If you are driving in the area, still use caution and drive slowly. High winds are blowing soot and smoke into the road, decreasing visibility.
