Caldwell, Tx A grass fire started Wednesday night at a fireworks display in Caldwell.

A field outside of the Elizabeth Lutheran Church off Highway 21 in Caldwell caught fire from the flame of a stray firework.

The fire did threaten the church building, but people attending the display reacted quickly enough to put it out before causing any damage.
The fireworks show did end early.
