TULSA, Okla. – A grass fire north of Tulsa could be to blame for the smokey haze residents are seeing across the metro.

The fire is now at 100 acres and is burning near Avant, a small town in Osage County, just northwest of Tulsa.

The fire started around 8 p.m. Thursday and crews have just now contained the blaze.

However, about 100 acres are still burning this morning.

The area is mostly ranch land, so fire crews have had difficulty getting the blaze under control.

On top of that, some of their equipment has been damaged battling the blaze.

This is the seventh fire in two days for the Avant area.

A fire in the same area on Tuesday burned more than 3,500 acres.
