Firefighters say a grass fire near Kechi started near a road and then spread to a pasture.

The fire started around 6:45 p.m., Division Chief Ray Hesley says that dry conditions and wind lead to the fire spreading quickly.

The fire near Hillside and 53rd Street North burned several acres of ground, but no buildings were damaged.

With the threat for more wind and dry conditions, firefighters are on high alert.

“Just be careful with what you are doing…be aware, be cognizant of what you are doing with your cigarettes, things like that, because it will catch the grass on fire,” Hesley said.
