The Turlock Fire Department was dispatched Monday afternoon to battle a growing grass fire on the Linwood Avenue overpass.

The quick moving grass fire was encroaching upon large farm equipment when the first fire crews arrived. Firefighters were able to stop the flames that were spreading along the south shoulder of Highway 99.

Crews remained on scene for an extended period of time mopping up.
