Texas, USA — One home is still in danger as firefighters battle a 100-acre grass fire in Hamilton County tonight.

Texas Forest Service spokeswoman Mary Hicks said volunteer firefighters and forest service officials have been battling a fire since shortly before 5 p.m. off County Road 622 in Hamilton County.

Firefighters saved one home from the flames and another is in danger. The fire continues to be out of control tonight. Officials are unsure how the blaze started.

A team of bulldozers is working to stop the fire’s spread and a helicopter has been attacking the flames from the air, although the pilot was forced to leave shortly before 6 p.m. when the helicopter ran low on fuel.
