GRADY COUNTY,Okla_Firefighters are battling a grass fire northeast of Marlow Tuesday night. It started around 1 p.m. when a farmer cutting hay realized some of the hay was smoldering.
The fire spread and slowly started moving to the northwest. Crews from Marlow, Rush Springs, and Grady County have been working to contain it. According to Grady County Assistant Fire Chief Larry Hayes, the fire burned about 200 acres, mostly timber.
He said they set a back burn to the west of the fire line to stop it from spreading much further. Hayes said they'll keep an eye on it for about an hour longer but they expect it to burn itself out.
No one was hurt and no buildings were damaged in the fire.
