BIG SPRING - The Big Spring Fire Department is investigating a string of grassfires in the north portion of the city.

The latest grassfire destroyed an abandoned structure on NW 3rd Friday. Fire Marshall Carl Condray says it could've been much worse. Several homes nearby were occupied.

Condray says this particular area of town is also notorious for unkept properties, with available fuels for fires such as tall grass and debris.

The Fire Marshall urges property owners to address such issues to protect their own and their neighbor's homes and personal safety.
