HOWARD COUNTY - 20 acres and two sheds burned up in a Howard County blaze on Wednesday.

The fire happened on south Anderson Road, near Neal Road around 2:00p.m.

Fire officials say even though they lost some acreage, they managed to save eight homes that were in danger.

They think burning trash ignited the blaze.

Crews spent several hours on the scene trying to bring the fire under control.

They say they had a hard time getting to the flames because the blaze was surrounded by sandy fields.
