TEXAS CITY — The Texas City Fire Department extinguished 10 small grass fires Saturday. 

The fires were along state Highway 3, Emmett F. Lowry Expressway, Mall of the Mainland Parkway and Century Boulevard, said Texas City Fire Department Assistant Chief Jesse Rubio. 

The fires were small and not connected to each other, Rubio said. The department responded Saturday after noon and had them out within an hour, he said.

“We have no idea what started them,” Rubio said.
