Northwest OKC grass fire sparks near neighborhood
OKLAHOMA CITY – Firefighters are battling a two or three acre grass fire in far northwest Oklahoma City.
Officials were called to the area of N.W. 164th St. and Rockwell Ave. shortly after 2 p.m. Thursday on a grass fire.
The fire appears to be behind the subdivision but authorities are concerned that the strong winds could carry an ember, causing the fire to reignite somewhere else.
Shortly before 2:30 p.m., it appeared that the fire is contained.
Forecasters are warning that the state is under a high fire danger for Thursday.
