Several homes in West Odessa are without power after a grassfire scorched several power lines.

The blaze sparked up earlier this evening in the 2800 block of North Mercedes, that's just off of West University.

The West Odessa Volunteer Fire Department was able to get the flames under control.

Right now, TXU is on the scene trying to restore the lines.

Officials say it will be out for about three more hours.

No one was injured and no structures were threatened.
