TRAVIS COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — Two fire departments helped put out a brush fire located at Pace Bend Park in northwest Travis County Monday afternoon. 

The fire was reported around 5:48 p.m. in the 2900 block of Grisham Trail. People living in Lago Vista captured video of flames and heavy smoke coming from the wooded area.

There were no evacuations. Around 8:30 p.m., the fire was contained. 

Lt. Kyle Swarts with the Pedernales Fire Department says his agency and Lake Travis Fire and Rescue responded to the call. Initial information indicates the fire burned 5-10 acres. 

Travis County officials believe the fire is a flare-up from last week’s prescribed burn in the park.
