ODESSA - Fire investigators are still trying to figure out what caused a large grass fire in southern Ector County on Sunday.

The fire burned around 400 acres near the Monahans draw around 2:30 in the afternoon.

Investigators think it might have started from a flare-up from a fire that actually first started the week before in the same spot.

Fire crews fought hotspots in that area two times last week.
