Miami-Dade Fire Rescue crews battled a grass fire in a wooded area in southwest Miami-Dade, Sunday night. The fire is now out.

Authorities said the fire was not a threat to nearby buildings.
MDFR dropped water to help extinguish the grass fire.
The Florida Forestry said the grass fire continued to grow Sunday night because the area was very grassy and wet.
