A grass fire in George Bush Park on Houston's far west side is about 95-percent contained today. Houston fire officials say they're still dealing with hotspots, but the worst of the fire is under control. The blaze started Tuesday afternoon and quickly spread to a wooded area of the park near Highway 6 and Westheimer, south of the Katy Freeway. Fire officials say no injuries have been reported and no structures in the park have burned. The fire consumed about 1500 acres.
