COLLEGE STATION, TX At 1:30PM Monday, a grass fire quickly spread at Highway 6 and FM 2818 which closed both lanes of southbound Highway 6 causing traffic to back up in both directions. The southbound lanes have since been reopened.

Strong winds from the South strengthened the blaze and at least 3 fire engines, a water tanker, grass truck and the CSPD were on scene.

News 3 will have updates when they become available.
