Farm machinery sparks fire in eastern Comanche County

COMANCHE COUNTY, Ok (KSWO) - It appears farm machinery may have been to blame for a grassfire which sparked around 3:30 east of Lawton.

According to witnesses, the tractor was working in the field near southeast 90th and Baseline Road when the fire ignited. Electric company crews working nearby saw the fire and attempted to help put it out but the flames grew too large and they called 911.

The fire scorched about 20-30 acres of land before trucks from Flower Mound, Geronimo and Hulen Fire Departments arrived on scene to suppress the flames.

There were no reports of injuries and no property appeared to be damaged.
