GOLIAD - Between 75 and 100 acres burned on State Highway 119 near the Goliad County line about 12:30 p.m. Saturday.
There were no reported injuries.
Goliad Fire Chief Alonzo Morales said the occupant of a property burned a brush pile Friday and the wind may have caused the blaze to reignite.
Morales said the occupant who started the fire was issued a citation by the Goliad County Sheriff's Office because a burn ban remains in effect.
The name of the person who received the ticket was not disclosed.
The chief said 45 firefighters controlled the flames within an hour.
