HOUSTON – A mid-morning grass fire at White Oak Bayou may have caused some damage to a pedestrian bridge, according to the Houston Parks Board.
The fire started just after 10 a.m. Wednesday at the MKT/Heights Hike-and-Bike Trail Bridge crossing near Studemont Street, authorities said.
Sky 2 video showed firefighter working to put out the flames in nearby foliage.
In the video, the flames appear to be impacting the bridge, but it is unclear if there was actually any damage to the structure.
However, according to the Houston Parks Board, the bridge will be shut down until further notice as the work to inspect and ensure the integrity of the structure.
