Grass fire spreads to ranch in Jones County

A grass fire took place in Jones County Friday afternoon on County Road 365 right next to Egg Farm Road.

The blaze began near a home in the area and spread to a ranch located next door.

At this point, it is unknown how many acres of land were burned in the fire.

The owner of the ranch where the fire spread to told KTXS he was very thankful for the multiple volunteer fire departments that responded to combat the growth of the blaze.

No major property damage was reported from the fire, although the blaze came very close to reaching a house before the flames approaching the dwelling were extinguished.

The cause of the fire is not known at this time and is currently under investigation.
