A fire that spread to more than 40 acres was put out by firefighters Thursday afternoon near Highway 107 and Raby Road between Bruceville-Eddy and Moody.

Six agencies responded to the large brush fire southwest of Bruceville-Eddy's city limits around 2 p.m.

The additional departments and resources were requested to aid in containment due to the high winds and large amounts of fuel, according to the Bruceville-Eddy Fire Department.

Officials said the fire was caused by embers from a previous burn.

Personnel will continue to monitor the scene for hot spots through the night.

The Moody Volunteer Fire Department, Lorena Fire Department, McGregor VFD, Troy VFD, the Texas Forestry Service, Waco-McLennan County Fire Corps and law enforcement officers worked the scene.
