TEMPLE -- Firefighters battled a large grass fire Wednesday afternoon near the Bellwood Memorial Park Cemetery off Airport Road in Temple.
Temple Fire & Rescue Spokesperson Thomas Pechal said the fire was under control by 2 p.m.
A truck hauling an oversized log cabin rammed an electrical pole and dragged down a power line, causing a grass fire that spread to 35-40 acres, according to Pechal.
