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.
