TEMPLE, Texas -- More than 70 cars were damaged by a grass fire just outside of Temple, Texas, and video we obtained shows just how much damage was made. The cars were parked in a grassy field at the Robinson Family Farm's fall festival celebration on Saturday. According to the Bell County Fire Marshal's Office, it is believed the blaze was sparked by a cigarette that someone threw in the dry grass. Bell County is currently under a burn ban because of extreme drought conditions. Fortunately, no one was injured.
