HOWARD COUNTY - A huge grassfire in Howard County is finally out, but it took firefighters all night to battle the blaze that scorched nearly 900 acres on the Quinn Ranch.

The fire started just after five Monday night along FM 818, near the Howard-Glasscock County line.  

Garden City firefighters pitched in to help.

It took more than 20 firefighters eight hours to get the blaze out.  

We're told the fire was likely started by an electrical problem on some oil field equipment.  

The fire just burned a lot of pasture.
