ALEDO, Texas — Firefighters fought changing winds to protect two neighborhoods from a "fiercely" fought approximate-137-acre fire in North Texas on Sunday night.
The fire, believed to have been sparked by lightning, quickly grew to 137 acres in just over an hours time, according to fire officials.
The fire occurred just east of the Aledo, Texas, city limits near and north of the area of North Front Street — surrounded by the Brookhollow and Rolling Hills subdivision.
According to the Parker County Services District 1, the fire was reported at 6:33 p.m. and was called under control by 7:49 p.m.
"..Proud of our firefighters who fought fiercely with several wind changes to protect numerous homes," read a statement, in part, from the department.
Firefighters from Willow Park, Benbrook, and Cresson assisted in the firefighting efforts.
