Fire crews struggle to get to grass fire north of Sterling

STERLING, OK (KSWO)- We're following breaking news just north Sterling this afternoon. We first told you about the grassfire during our 4:00 o'clock newscast and our crew out there estimates about 50 acres have already been burned.

The fire is off of Meers-Porter Hill Road, just east of 195th Street near Sterling. Crews are having a hard time getting to the flames since they are pushed up against some trees.

We'll continue to keep you updated as more information becomes available.
