Multiple departments responded to the Hardy Weedon Road area.
BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - Firefighters had a busy Saturday afternoon containing a grass fire on the east side of Brazos County.

Fire officials say it was a controlled burn that got out of control. Firefighters did have some trouble accessing the site due to a creek bed and recent rains.
