HOWARD COUNTY - They've been worried about grassfires, and on Monday, they got one.
The Howard County Volunteer Fire Department had their hands full battling a blaze just before 3:00p.m.
The fire started on the median of the I-20 service road, near Cauble Road.
Fire crews got there just in time to prevent the flames from getting into a open field.
They believe about a half mile of grass burned.
The flames are being blamed on a blown tire, which ignited dry grass.
