The grass fire quickly fueled by the high winds moved into a new housing addition called "Skyler's Court." The fire burned up to and in the back yards of several homes. Firefighters are still on scene watching for hot spots and any rekindling near the homes. Several fences and backyards burned, but so far, the homes have been spared.
