OKLAHOMA CITY – Fire crews worked more than two hours to battle a grass fire in southeast Oklahoma City.

Reports indicate approximately 10 acres of grass is on fire at a junkyard near S.E. 59th and Shields. Nearly 35 firefighters worked feverishly to keep the flames from involving nearby structures.

Three trailers north of the fire got caught in the flames, but all houses and businesses were protected, officials say.

Officials believe the fire was intentionally set. The person who reportedly called 911 said that the person who started the fire was still in the vicinity.

Authorities have someone in custody who was seen running from the area.

The fire is under control, but firefighters are still patrolling the perimeter of the fire looking for any hot spots.

There were no reported injuries.
