LAWTON, Okla. (TNN) - The high winds, low humidity and dry vegetation kept area firefighters busy Saturday putting out several brush fires.

Shortly before 3:30 p.m. Saturday, a fire threatened several houses and barns southeast of Lawton near Bishop Rd. Fortunately, firefighters acted quickly to put out the flames.

No one was injured and no structures were damaged, but roughly 14 acres burned.

At this time, officials are not sure what started the fire.

Crews from the Lawton, Flower Mound and Valley View Fire Departments all responded. They were assisted by the Comanche County Sheriff’s Department and emergency management.
