ODESSA - If you saw a lot of smoke along Highway 385 on Thursday afternoon, you weren't alone.

A series of grass fires sparked up along the highway around four thirty, near the Pa Paw area.

Fire officials tell NewsWest 9, a truck dragging something metal along the road, sending sparks into the grass which ignited the fires.
