CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A KIII 3 News viewer caught footage of a grass fire on the side of I-37, near the Nueces Bay exit. It happened around 3 p.m. Sunday.

KIII News viewer William Bright pulled over on the side of the highway after he became  trapped between the flames and all that smoke.

There has been no word yet as to what sparked the fire, but crews had to shut down a portion of the roadway while they got the flames under control.
