Grassfires keep Comanche County crews busy

Posted: Updated:
COMANCHE COUNTY, Okla._Comanche County crews were busy Sunday night as grass fires continued to pop up all over the county.

The first happened near Highway 49 by Medicine Park. 5 agencies including the Wichita Mountain Estates VFD responded around 4 Sunday afternoon to behind the Medicine Park Tag Agency in the Ketch Creek area. 

The flames only burned around 5 acres, but crews worked promptly to prevent the fire from spreading to nearby structures. The fire was under control within thirty minutes -- the cause is still under investigation.

Another fire quickly sparked off of 60th street and Coombs in Comanche County when an arching power line sent sparks into the air, causing flames on the ground.  

The Flower Mound Fire Department was able to quickly extinguish the blaze before it burnt any significant amount of land.  

Luckily, no permanent damage occurred in the area.
