SAN ANTONIO - Officials say a fire at a compost facility in South Texas could burn for several days.

No injuries have been reported in the blaze that broke out Monday night in a rural area on the east side of San Antonio.

Fire department Chief Charles Hood says the original call was about a grass fire. Wooden pallets later went up in flames as the fire grew.

Authorities say no structures or homes are threatened by the fire at New Earth Soils & Compost.

A message left with the company was not immediately returned Tuesday.
