COMANCHE COUNTY, Okla._An afternoon grassfire in Comanche County left a yard in ashes.

It happened just after 1:00 p.m. on State Highway 65 approximately one-and-a-half miles south of Highway 7. The homeowner believes the fire was sparked by a passing truck carrying a trailer with a flat tire. The fire burned the front yard before it spread to a nearby tree. Firefighters from two departments quickly responded and put the flames out before the fire spread to any structures.

No injuries were reported.
