A massive fire broke out at approximately 1 p.m. today after an individual towing a vehicle caused sparks to ignite dry grass along Highways BB and 1090. At last report, 11 fire departments had responded to the multiple fires caused from the incident. It is not clear how many acres have burned, but it has been re-ported that several struc-tures are threatened and some have been engulfed. Keep watching for more updates as they happen.
