— Emergency crews from 4 different agencies worked Saturday to contain a grassfire near an area where an outer building was burned in a rural area near the popular Inks Lake State Park, west of Austin.

The cause of the grassfire is unknown but officials are now saying that the structure fire was unrelated to the grassfire.

Crews from around the area quickly extinguished the blaze and as of early Sunday morning were in the process of putting out hotspots and determining the cause of the blaze. No injuries were reported.
