ROBINSON -- Firefighters battling yet another grassfire that started in Robinson late this morning.

Crews were called out East of I-35 between Hewitt Dr. and Moonlight Dr. to a grassfire that forced the roads to shut down thanks to massive smoke clouds blowing across the interstate.

Hot temperatures and 15 mph winds caused the fire to spread rapidly and authorities asked homes along Surrey Ridge to temporarily  evacuate until further notice.

Crews were able to contain the grassfire but are still monitoring hot spots.
