Granite Shoals and Marble Falls firefighters responded Wednesday, Feb. 23, to a grassfire at Honeymoon Ranch along RR 1431 between the two cities. No one was harmed as a result of the fire, but about 40 acres of land and roughly 160 round hay bales burned.
The fire was called in at 7:30 a.m. and was under control by 9:10 a.m., confirmed Granite Shoals Fire Chief Tim Campbell. Crews planned to remain on site to monitor hay bales that were still burning. The property owner was also assisting.
The blaze started with multiple spot fires near the road that were likely the result of sparks caused by a chain or other metal object being dragged by a trailer, Campbell said.
