KSAL StaffMarch 31, 2014

Authorities say a grass fire over about 1,500 acres in northeast Kansas damaged two homes and four outbuildings. No injuries were reported.

Shawnee County Sheriff Herman Jones told The Topeka Capital-Journal its  unclear what started the fire Sunday. Fire crews from throughout the city and surrounding area fought the fire through strong winds and dry conditions.

The fire was relatively under control by mid-afternoon.

The National Weather Service also warned of fire conditions in Kansas on Sunday because of temperatures in the 70s, very low humidity and winds in excess of 25 miles per hour. The conditions were expected to continue at least into Monday.
