BREWSTER COUNTY - The Texas Forest Service is still dealing with a large grass fire burning in Brewster County, east of Alpine.

Crews say the Rocking J-B-H Fire has burned about 75,000 acres, and is now 40 percent contained, but we're told it may be until Tuesday before it's all out.

Firefighters say the fire is no longer threatening the Blake-Moore Ranch.

They spent the day cutting fire lines and attacking the fire by air.

Fire crews say the biggest problem on Saturday was the high winds, but in the evening the winds have died down.
