COMANCHE COUNTY, OK (KSWO) - Area firefighters are resting up after a busy weekend, including several fires late Sunday night. 

The first one broke out along Highway 7 at Southeast 90th Street in Eastern Comanche County. Crews from Valley View Volunteer Fire Department raced to stop the flames. Minutes later, several more fires were reported along the highway, stretching into Stephens County. Firefighters were able to contain the flames in a short amount of time.

It's not clear how they started, but it appears a loose chain being dragged by a vehicle or a trailer could be to blame.
