DAWSON COUNTY - A big grassfire is under control in Dawson County after scorching 150 acres.

The Texas Forest Service is calling the fire east of Lamesa, the Youngblood Fire.

Borden County and Lamesa fire fighters were on the scene first with the forest service sending in back-up in the form of dozers and a helicopter.

We're told the flames were burning in some pretty rugged terrain, but firefighters didn't have a lot of trouble with the fire once they got the upper hand.

No structures were burned, and no one was hurt.
