Crews Monitor Wildfire in Kansas, Oklahoma

KSAL StaffMarch 29, 2016

Crews will continue to patrol a wildfire that has burned hundreds of square miles of sparsely populated land in Kansas and Oklahoma.

The fire, which started last week in Oklahoma before spreading to southern Kansas, has largely been contained. But Barber County Attorney Gaten Wood says crew will be watching the fire closely because of high winds and dry conditions forecast for Tuesday.

Oklahoma Forestry Services spokeswoman Hannah Anderson says crews also will continue to patrol and monitor the fire line there and work on putting out any hot spots. She says the fire did not spread Monday despite the hot, windy conditions.

The fire destroyed several homes in rural Barber County, where most of the damage occurred. No injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
