Wildfire Burns North of Prue

Posted: Updated:

Four fire departments responded to a large grass fire north of Prue this evening.

The wildfire reportedly has burned 1,100 acres of private land and threatened restricted Indian land.

The fire departments involved, Morgan's Corner, Hominy Ranchers, Prue and Osage Nation will extend the burnout another mile to tie two sides together in order to put the fire out, Bob Tallchief of Osage Nation Emergency Management said.

Due to dropping winds and rising humidity, Tallchief reported a low fire danger tonight.

Tallchief said they will let the fire burn tonight and will return tomorrow to put it out.
