MIDLAND COUNTY - A company picnic up in flames in Midland County.

The incident occurred in front of Total Safety on Highway 80 around 7:00p.m. Tuesday night.

Fire officials say folks there were grilling out of the barbeque pit in the trailer when the wind whipped the hot grease onto the propane flame and caught the entire trailer on fire.

No one was hurt and crews kept the flames from leaping over to the truck.

Fire officials are reminding all citizens to be careful when working with an open flame on windy days.
