Fast Moving Grass Fire Destroys Geodesic Dome

By  | 

WELLBORN - The South Brazos County Fire Department batted a fast moving fire that destroyed a house, 18-wheeler, RV and a tractor.

The fire, on Straub Road, started just before 5:30 p.m. Lori Adams tells us she and her husband, Jim Thomas, heard an explosion. They jumped in the car to go see what it was.

Firefighters say the fire started around the 18-wheeler and quickly spread from there, burning an acre of grass and several other vehicles, eventually catching a geodesic dome on fire.

The cause of the fire is unknown.

Crews had the fire under control in about an hour.
