Grass Fire Last Week Keeps Area Firefighter’s Busy

Joe Denoyer - January 14, 2018 10:49 pm

(gctelegram.com)Windy conditions last Wednesday are believed to have contributed to a grass fire in Haskell County.

Satanta Fire Chief Jared Sunderland said the fire, which was reported between 11:30 a.m. and noon about 5 miles west of Satanta, is the first of the year for the Satanta Fire Department.

Sunderland said the fire was average in size, and he didn’t have an estimate of how many acres of land were affected. He said it took fire crews until about 3 p.m. to extinguish the fire. Firefighters remained on the scene until 6 p.m., given the windy conditions, to check for hot spots and clean up the area.
