Firefighters contained a large mulch fire Sunday in southeast Fort Worth and let it burn itself out after more than 16 hours.
The fire department responded at around midnight to calls for the fire in the 6200 block of Salt Road at a mulch collection site.
The fire, which consisted of four 40-foot tall mulch piles that stretched to a combined 300 yards in length, was contained and burned into Sunday afternoon, officials said.
Crews rotated every two hours to monitor the blaze while it burned itself out, officials said.
The department scaled down its response in the afternoon and had a single brush truck keeping an eye on the fire.
No injuries were reported Sunday.
