USA — A grass fire damaged 100 cars at a Bell County property, located south of Belton, on Saturday.
Fire crews say the fire started before 2:30 p.m. after a controlled burn led to a grass fire in the 7200 block of Armstrong Road. Ten fire departments, including Holland, Little River, Belton and Bell County, spent nearly two hours putting out the fire. The high winds caused the fire to spread quickly.
Firefighters say the flames spread to a nearby field where a homeowner had collected the cars.
No one was injured and no other houses suffered any damage.
According to the Bell County Fire Marshal, a woman staying with the homeowner started a trash fire and the wind caused the grass to catch fire. The fire has been ruled an accident and no charges will be filed.
