FORT HOOD -- Fort Hood officials confirmed another wildfire that was burning Sunday.

About 1,500 acres had burned since the fire started at 8:20 a.m. Sunday on the Browns Creek Multi-use range.

Officials did not know what started the fire.

Crews were cutting fire breaks late Sunday but estimated they would not be able to give a containment percentage because high winds were making it too hard to control the fire.

No structures or people were in danger of the flames on the range which is located on the western side of the impact area on the range.

Last week, two fires at the Blackwell and Lone Star ranges burned close to 1,000 acres before officials were able to completely put them out.
