Re: Grass fires creating traffic problems on I-20

I drove past these fires shortly before 4 pm today near Lindale. The smoke was so thick traffic was forced to a crawl. A few fire trucks were responding but it seemed like they didn't quite know what to do. I am curious to know what started the fires as there were several miles between some of the fires and some were not right next to the road. The smoke was VERY thick and much darker than the usual grass fire in my opinion.
