SLAUGHTERVILLE, Okla. – Authorities say a man wanted on two felony warrants was taken into custody following a grass fire.
Around 2:15 p.m. on Wednesday, Cleveland County Sheriff’s deputies were called to a grass fire that was moving toward a residence in Slaughterville.
When deputies arrived at the scene, they realized the fire was quickly approaching a mobile home in the area.
“Deputy Graham and I took our fire extinguishers and attempted to keep the fire away from the house,” MSgt. Travis Shroyer said.
Fire investigators say the blaze caused about $500 in damage and burned about 20 acres of land. Ultimately, authorities learned that the fire began when a vehicle pulled into tall grass, which caught the grass on fire.
Deputies learned the driver was identified as Shannon Davis, who was wanted for two felony warrants.
