Strong winds, warm weather create perfect storm for fires
A few smaller ones were ignited including one in Pottawatomie County east of McLoud, along Highway 177.
Firefighters quickly got it under control and it never threatened any homes.
Crews said although we are not under a burn ban, it’s good to be aware of any outdoor burning.
Strong winds can quickly turn embers in to flames.
