CORPUS CHRISTI, Tx — The Corpus Christi Fire Department has contained a brush fire near the corner of Gilliam Street and Hwy 44.

Corpus Christi Fire Chief Robert Rocha said the fire may have been sparked by an electric line laying in the grass.

Rocha said the fire then spread to wood pallets which ignited a nearby building.

Only part of the building was damaged, and no injuries were reported.

The fire is still under investigation by CCFD.

A stretch of Agnes St is still closed off as well as railroad traffic in the area.
