PRYOR, OK — Despite the Red Flag Warning in effect for much of northeastern Oklahoma, local fire departments fought several grass fires over the weekend. Strong winds, up to 40 miles per hour, made matters worse. “We had one grass fire, started by fire place ashes,” said Chouteau FIre Chief Ted Key, who said multiple structures were in danger. “We are very thankful to Pryor and Osage Fire Departments for their help.”Key said his department had five units on scene, Osage had two and Pryor had three. “It was a team effort that saved homes,” said Key. Crews also responded to a grass fire in Salina and one in Osage.
