COOKE CO. & GRAYSON CO., TEXAS -- More than a dozen fire crews from both Cooke and Grayson counties are battling a wildfire today.

Around 4:30 p.m., Whitesboro firefighters responded to a wildfire on the border of Cooke County and Grayson County near Delaware Bend Road.

Sherwood Shores, Gunter, Pottsboro, Gordonville, Howe, Tom Bean, Whitewright, Whitesboro, Oakridge, Callisburg, North Shore, Lindsay, Meunster and Cooke County and Grayson County Fire Marshals all responded.

To get through the heavily forested area, they are asking for help in the form of bulldozers from the Texas Forest Service.

Cooke County Fire Marshal Ray Fletcher says more than a hundred acres have burned.

No structures have been damaged.

They are investigating what caused the fire; there's a possibility it could be arson.

Volunteer supporters say the firemen are in desperate need of donations, mostly in the form of Gatorade and water bottles. They suggest contacting your local fire department if you are interested in donating.
