Emergency crews battled a large fire in Driscoll, Texas.

A small tank used to fuel tractors caught on fire at a farm on Sunset Street around 11:30 a.m.

The Driscoll Fire Chief said a short in the tank’s pump sparked the fire and the flames spread to a nearby tractor.

Crews worked to stop the flames from spreading to two tanks nearby and officers shut down a portion of F.M. 665 near County Road 81.

It took crews about half an hour to put out the fire and no one was injured.
