JIM WELLS COUNTY (Kiii News) -

A series of grass fires in Jim Wells County caused traffic to be redirected on Friday.

About half a dozen small grass fires between Agua Dulce and Alice caused a hazard around lunchtime. Fire officials said the smoke crossing the roadway caused zero visibility, and because of that, officials did rerouted traffic on Highway 44 East to 359 East as a precaution.
