OKLAHOMA CITY – Emergency crews are battling hot spots from a grass fire that was approaching homes in far western Oklahoma City.

Shortly before 3 p.m., firefighters were called to the 9700 block of W. Wilshire Blvd. on a grass fire.

According to initial reports, the fire consumed more than 10 acres and was approaching nearby homes.

Officials say they are concerned about the dry conditions and the strong winds, which could fuel the flames.

Several brush-pumpers are in the field, putting out hot spots.

A few homeowners in the area are also trying to water around their properties to prevent the flames from spreading.

Firefighters have asked some homeowners in the area to evacuate in case the fire does spread.

Fortunately, it appears that most of the fire is under control.
