LOGAN COUNTY, Okla. – Fire crews are canceling the evacuation for Logan County residents after a large grass fire burned through the area.

According to Guthrie Fire Chief Eric Harlow, at least seven units were called to the fire, including Cashion, Deer Creek, Woodcrest, Meridian, Oak Cliff, Guthrie, and Edmond.

Officials also called in air support.

Earlier, fire crews asked residents in the path of the fire to evacuate.

According to the Guthrie Fire Department, if you live east of Choctaw Road to XXX road, or north of Prairie Grove Road to Highway 105, you were in the evacuation zone.

Residents in the area were asked to go east or west.

However, around 5:45 p.m., officials called off the evacuation and allowed residents back into the area.
