Flames broke out in Midland County on Monday afternoon.

The fire sparked up around 3p.m. off Highway 1788, near County Road 127.

We're told the fire was started by a welder at C&A Fabrication.

The flames then spread to Waggoner's Trucking.

Some tires and a big rig went up in flames.

Fire crews were able to get the fire out rather quickly but not before a couple acres were burned as well.

Two tickets were issued to the welder for starting the blaze.
