Grass Fire Heats Up Labor Day

FM 570, just north of Lake Leon, was closed between 2214 and County Road 461 due to a grass fire for most of Monday afternoon and evening.   Wind gusts out of the south at up to 28 mph this afternoon caused the smoke and fire to move towards FM 570.    The Eastland, Ranger, Olden, Carbon and Gorman fire departments as well as the Texas Forest Services were on the scene to battle the blaze.  Fire could be seen from CR 461 which was eventually also closed for part of the evening.    By about 8:30 p.m. the fire was under control.
