Posted: Updated:
Rendon, Texas -

A brush fire forced the evacuation of several homes in Rendon, southeast of Fort Worth. It started at around 8:00 p.m. at the 5600 block of Redwine Court.

At last check, 20 acres burned and seven homes had to be evacuated. The Tarrant County Fire public information officer said no structures have burned.

The fire was growing rapidly in wooded areas because of high wind gusts but is now under control.

No injuries have been reported.

A cause has not been determined but the fire marshal says it's highly likely fireworks played a role.
