Fire crews battled a large grass fire south of Burkburnett between I44 and Shallow Field Road Sunday afternoon.

Burkburnett VFD Chief Rodney Ryalls said the fire burned about 150 acres.

He said it started about 2:16 p.m. and was contained around 5 p.m. 

He adds fire crews will stay on the scene to make sure no hot spots spark up and will be out in the morning to do another check. 

Chief Ryalls said the fire was on an oil lease and a shed, some pumpjacks and equipment were destroyed. 

No homes were threatened and no injuries were reported. 

Some Oncor polls were also burned. Oncor called out to take care of those. 

At least four fire departments including Burkburnett, Sheppard, Wichita Falls and Friberg-Cooper all helped to put out the grass fire. 

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
