An illegal burn that got out of control kept area firefighters busy Friday afternoon.

The fire that burned about 40 acres on Hilton Road in northwest Brazos County destroyed hay bales and fences before being contained.

Brazos County Volunteers from Precincts 2, 3 and 4 along with a crew from Hearne and the Texas Forest Service responded to fire that was reported just before two in the afternoon.

The Brazos County Sheriff's Department issued a citation to the person responsible for starting the fire.
