A Sunday fire, sparked by a trash fire, near the Grimes County line burned more than 100 acres of land.
According to authorities, that occurred after a burn ban violation early Sunday in western Walker County, and burned near Wesley Grove Road and State Highway 30. That fire was fully contained on Sunday night, and crews stayed at the scene overnight and into Monday to monitor.
Multiple agencies responded to the scene, which included crews mostly from Grimes County, Montgomery County, and Walker County. Weather on Sunday contributed to the rapid spread, as humidity levels sat around 20 percent, and wind gusts around 30 miles per hour made for a day of increased fire danger.
Smoke could be seen as far away as Madison County.
No one was injured during the blaze, but multiple structures were threatened as the blaze continued into the late afternoon.
There are active burn bans in place for only Walker, Lee, and Robertson Counties, but the rest of the Brazos Valley is encouraged to not burn.
