FLOWOOD, MS (WLBT) – Continuing dry weather may have sparked a grass fire Sunday afternoon in Flowood.

Fire fighters responded to the blaze around three o'clock in the woods near Old Brandon Road.

Smoke could be seen billowing above the area just east of the Pearl River banks and south of Crystal Lake.

Fire could be seen at the wood line, but officials would not say how far it spread.

Less than a quarter of an inch of rain has fallen during the entire month.

The cause of the fire has not been determined.
