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.
