Denton Fire Department is on scene of a large grass fire that is burning hundreds of acres and had threatened homes.

Firefighters say they have the blaze mostly contained and are keeping it away from barns and other structures in the area. Fire crews have cut the fire off so that homes located to the north of the fire should not be threatened.

The fire is near Loop 288 and US 77 on the north side of Denton along Ganzer Rd. That road is shut down from Bonnie Brae to I-35.

The grass fire has also caught some hay bails on fire, requireing four brush trucks from Denton and other fire departments.

No injuries were reported at this time.
