Wood and grass fire causes smoke to billow in northwest Houston

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Houston fire officials worked for hours to put out a fire in northwest Houston Sunday.

A trash fire was first reported on Crawford Road near Tanner just before 5 a.m.

However, Houston Fire Chief Sam Peña later said it was a wood and grass fire. He said there is no elevated hazard to the community.

ABC13 crews captured video of large amounts smoke billowing from the location. As of 1 p.m. Sunday, smoke could still be seen rising in the area.

Strong winds Sunday morning fueled the fire even more, officials said.
