A massive grass fire that forced homeowners in Waller County to evacuate has been extinguished.
Investigators say the fire broke out around 1:30 p.m. Sunday, after winds picked up, spreading hot embers from a nearby trash fire.
Seven families were forced to evacuate their homes as the out-of-control fire inched closer.
Eight emergency agencies responded to the massive fire, which burned roughly 30 acres.
The homeowners were allowed to return once the fire was extinguished.
