A power line sparked a fire in Midland on Thursday afternoon.

The fire sparked up just after 4 p.m. at Fairgrounds and Wadley, next to the Ranchland Country Club.

According to fire crews, a transformer blew causing the power line to short and fall to the ground.

The grass caught fire but crews were able to quickly knock it out.

Fairgrounds was blocked off for two hours so ONCOR could get in and make repairs.
