ODESSA - A party pit is getting the blame for a grass fire in North Odessa Wednesday morning.

The fire broke out a little before 10:30 near the 900 block of Yucca.  

According to firefighters, the whole thing started with a fire in what they called a party pit that they said may have been started by some kids.  

We're told the firefighters got aggressive when fighting the flames, because of the high winds and close proximty to houses.  

It took nearly an hour to get it under control, but not before the fire destroyed a storage building.  

No one was hurt.
