Tuscola fire

Multiple volunteer fire departments battled a grass fire off CR 154 in Tuscola.

According to dispatchers, the grass fire was threatening a horse barn.

The Taylor County Sheriff's Office tells KTXS a house used for storage, two out buildings, and a travel trailer were all destroyed after the grass fire spread.

The billowing smoke could been seen from the KTXS studios -- 20 miles to the north.

A Red Flag Warning is in effect for most of the Big Country until 6 p.m.

The fire is completely out but the cause has not been determined.
