The tenants in a Texarkana, Texas apartment building have firefighters to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.

Firefighters were responding to a grass fire that broke out near the apartment building in the 300 block of Brookwood Drive when the wind swept it into a nearby fence. From there, the flames made it into a vent on the side of the building an into one of the units.

Since firefighters were already on the scene, they were able to quickly get the flames under control, with minimal damage to the building.

It's not yet clear what caused the grass fire.

No one was hurt.
