Sonora volunteer firefighters worked to extinguish a grass fire on ranchland property located along Miers Road in Sutton County Tuesday afternoon, July 9, 2019.

Three Sonora fire trucks were used in the effort as well as two fire trucks from neighboring Schleicher County. Heavy brush and dry vegetation fueled the fire which quickly spread over several acres.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

This is the second grassfire so far this season.

As of Monday, July 8, a burn ban is in effect for Sutton County.
