Dry Conditions Spark Small Fires

A number of small grass fires have been popping up across the Brazos Valley.

That includes one near the Brazos County community of Kurten. Local firefighters tended to the blaze, which neared a few homes but didn't do any damage.

Other counties reported small fires, but none that caused major damage.

Right now, only Robertson County is under a burn ban, but dry conditions have prevailed over most of this year, so red flag warnings are in place for much of the region.
