Comanche County_Several grass fires broke out Thursday afternoon in Comanche. The largest one broke out around 2pm near Elgin and quickly spread. The smoke was so thick, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol had to shut down I-44 between mile markers 57 and 62 for nearly two hours. More than a dozen fire departments from worked to contain the blaze, including units from Lawton and Fort Sill.
Firefighters say the grass fire spread to cover about one and a half square miles. At one point, they thought the fire was threatening structures near Fletcher. It even crossed over I-44 but, they say being pro-active in responding so quickly helped them battle this blaze.
