MIDLAND COUNTY - The grassfire sparked up off Highway 1788 in Midland County on Friday afternoon, near the Rock the Desert camp.

Despite the rain we've seen this past week, it's still very dry out there.

Fire crews were concerned the flames might make it to some nearby gas lines, but they were able to put it out quickly.

Investigators aren't sure what caused the fire to spark up.
