Petronila Grass Fire - South Texas, Corpus Christi, Coastal Bend

Petronila Grass Fire

Posted: Updated:

More than five acres of land are charred after a grass fire Saturday afternoon.

Fire crews were called out to FM 2444 and CR 53 around 1 PM.

One family grabbed a fire hose to douse their back yard as the flames crept closer to their home. Investigators believe it may have been started by someone burning trash...but it's still under investigation.
