Firefighters battle blaze in Grambling
More than 20 firefighters, along with 12 trucks from two departments, worked feverishly to contain the fire as wind fanned the flames which at times threatened three homes and two churches.
The fire ultimately destroyed an estimated 10 acres of undergrowth, Lincoln Parish Fire Chief Dennis Ford said.
The Cactus Jacks fire was one of seven that parish firefighters responded to Thursday, Ford said.
Parish and Ruston fire departments have fought about 33 grass fires in a two-week span.
