Texas, USA — Firefighters are at the scene of an oil and grass fire in northern Starr County. An oil tanker crashed and spilled an unknown amount of oil near the intersection of FM 1017 and La Reforma Road. That oil is burning at this hour, and fields nearby are also on fire.

Crews were able to save several buildings that belong to the oil company in the area. All the workers nearby were safely evacuated. But officials tell us it could be sometime before they put this oil and grass fire out.
