CADDO PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

A grass fire Tuesday afternoon in Caddo Parish came very close to a home just outside Shreveport's southeast line.

Crews were able to put out the fire on Dixie Meadow Road, which officials said began with burning trash.

The flames reportedly got out of hand and quickly spread into the grass, and caught an old barn on fire. That barn burned to the ground.

No one was injured, but the fire did burn up the grass leading up to a nearby house.
