Grass fire sparks near HWY 7 Comanche/Stephens County line

STEPHENS COUNTY, OK (KSWO)- Several crews responded to a series of fires along Highway 7 near the Comanche/Stephens County line. 

Crews still have not determined how they started, but they suspect the fires were ignited by a vehicle that could have been inadvertently dragging a chain, or a trailer that was sending out sparks.  

Firefighters were able to get it under control and keep it from spreading too far.  It did re-kindle about three hours later, but crews knocked it down relatively quickly.
