A marsh fire in the Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge north of High Island, first reported Monday night, had grown to about 2,200 acres by Wednesday when it was about 50% contained.

Tim Cooper, with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, said crews from the Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Park Service, the Bureau of Indian Affairs and Texas Parks and Wildlife expected to have the blaze under control by the end of the day Wednesday.
