ODESSA - Traffic is moving again on Loop 338 as firefighters mop up a grassfire on the west side of Odessa.

The flames broke out around three Friday afternoon.

The smoke from the flames forced a portion of Loop 338 to be shut down between I-20 and Highway 80 for a while.

Four city fire trucks and two from west Odessa were called out to battle the blaze.

Despite the wind outside, they managed to get the fire out in less than an hour.

Fire investigators say they may never know what started the fire.
