Another grass fire kept fire fighters busy in the panhandle of Oklahoma Thursday evening. The call came in at around 6:30pm of a grass fire just west of Optima in Texas County. Fire units from Guymon, Hooker, Hardesty, and Tyrone were dispatched to the scene along with road crews from Texas County District #2. According to Harold Tyson, Emergency Management Director, the extra units were called out as a precaution, so the fire did not get out of control, like Tuesday’s fire.

Acreage invovled in trhis fire was kept to a minimun.
