Large grass fire burns 200 acres in west Flower Mound

Large grass fire burns 200 acres in west Flower Mound

Firefighters have contained a series of massive grass fires in Parker and Grayson Counties Monday. Students at Walsh are being to bussed to Daniel 9th Grade Campus while McCall students are being bussed to Aledo High School.

The fire caused the evacuation of two schools while lifting a plume of smoke into the air that is visible more than 60 miles away.

The blaze closed all lanes of Interstates 20 and 30 from Interstate 820 in Tarrant County to FM5 in Parker County, the report said. At the housing development, only about a dozen of the 150 or so constructed homes were occupied. No injuries were reported.

The highways reopened as the afternoon commute was getting underway.

The Texas A&M Forest Service said fire crews appeared to be making progress against the wildfire that has scored about 1,000 acres (405 hectares) near Willow Park, Texas, and forced evacuation of a nearby rural subdivision and school.

Meanwhile, ranchers were seen in the area wrangling a herd of cattle, directing them away from the fire to safety.

The first fire Monday was in Flower Mound, burning on the northeast corner of FM 1171 and Highway 377.




One structure was damaged, Teague said, though he did not know what kind of structure it was.

Parker County Judge Mark Riley signed a disaster declaration that will allow for more resources to fight the fire.

Fire agencies from Denton, Argyle, Justin, Highland Village, Lewisville, Lake Cities and Roanoke are assisting Flower Mound crews on the scene.

In Central Texas, there is a Fire Weather Warning for Lampasas County until 6 p.m. due to low humidity and gusty winds. See a complete list here.

The fire started in the Willow Park Community and is spreading to the Southeast.
