Update: Wichita Falls Grass Fire Nears Windmill Lake Subdivision

The cause of a grass fire that neared a Wichita Falls neighborhood, is being called suspicious.
Fire officials say there were no obvious signs of ignition sources, and no witnesses were in the area when the fire started.
Wichita Falls Firefighters say the blaze started in a ravine by a communications tower, between the end of Onaway Trail and Arrowhead Drive.  Winds drove that flames toward the Windmill Lake subdivision, but firefighters were able to quickly cut it off. 
Numerous volunteer fire departments assisted in fighting the blaze.
