Cotton burr fire burns near Shallowater

LUBBOCK, Texas -

A cotton burr fire outside of Shallowater kept several fire departments busy for hours Friday.

It started in the burr house, then spread to the moat house before reaching the burr pile itself. These kinds of fires are common during ginning season. They are smoky and can burn for a very long time.

No one was hurt in Friday's fire.
