ODESSA - Smoke across the West Texas sky is a reminder that even with our recent rains, it's still very dry.

The latest grassfire sparked up on Tuesday afternoon on the south end of West County Road.

Firecrews had to call in heavy equipment to cut down the brush around the flames to keep the fire from spreading.

West Odessa and city firefighters worked together to put out the grassfire.

No word yet on how many acres were burned.
