ODESSA - Strong winds and lots of fuel on the ground kept this fire going for hours.
West Odessa fire crews say they've been calling for a burn ban in Ector County, and after the fire on Sunday, they hope they get their wish.
The winds kicked up a big blaze south of Odessa off Dixie, with dry grass on the ground, and powerful winds.
Even with six fire trucks working to cut off the fire, firefighters just couldn't stop it.
"Our biggest problem is the brush. We've had taller flames than our trucks. We've had six different wind changes while we've been out there," West Odessa Volunteer Fire Chief Jimmy Ellis said.
