PECOS COUNTY - After burning for almost a week, the Huckaby fire in Pecos County is out.

Almost 100,000 acres burned in the fire southeast of Fort Stockton.

Right now, we're told there is no smoke showing, and the Forest Service has blocked off the path of the fire, but they're playing it safe, and are calling the fire 75 percent contained.

They say they'll monitor the area from the air for the next couple of days, watching out for any flare-ups.

Only one building was burned in the blaze.

No one was hurt.
