OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – A large grass fire burned in Northeast Oklahoma City Thursday, causing heat-related injuries to a firefighter and a property owner.
The fire ignited in an outbuilding and spread to a trailer full of tires. The blaze then moved into a wooded area, according to Oklahoma City Fire Department officials.
The fire was a threat to nine horses and a few dogs, but firefighters and the property owners worked together and moved the animals to safety.
Although none of the animals were harmed, a firefighter and a property owner did suffer heat exhaustion. Both were transported to the hospital, fire officials said.
