MCLOUD, Okla.- The grass fire that fire crews battled in Pottawatomie County on Thursday afternoon has been put out.

Shortly before 2 p.m., firefighters were called to the area of S.E. 89th St. and Pottawatomie County Line Rd. on a grass fire.

The fire had already burned 50 to 60 acres in the area by the time the KFOR chopper got to the scene.

Strong winds pushed those flames to the east toward trees and open grass.

Firefighters from Shawnee and McLoud worked to protect a few homes in the area.

The fire has since been extinguished.

According to NewsChannel 4 meteorologist Aaron Brackett, very low dewpoints across the state are providing the perfect conditions for grass fires.
