West Lawton grassfire

Investigators say it appears children playing in a west-side neighborhood started a grassfire that came dangerously close to some homes.  It happened Sunday afternoon between 38th and 52nd St. near Bishop and Malcom Rd.  The flames burned very close to some homes in the Park Ridge neighborhood.

Crews from across Lawton responded as the fire rapidly grew.  Some homeowners did what they could to keep the flames from overtaking their property.  Fortunately, no homes were damaged.  Some homes under construction also escaped damage.  One firefighter was hurt.  He was treated and released from the hospital.
