AUGUSTA, Kan. -- High winds and dry conditions combined to spread a dangerous grass fire in Butler County Sunday night.
The flames started around 8:00 p.m. in the area of 135th Street and Hopkins Switch, about three miles southeast of Augusta.
The fire jumped a road at one point, and threatened seven homes. But Maj. Ray Marbut with the Augusta Department of Public Safety told KAKE News only one home has any damage, and it's "very minor."
The challenge was staying ahead of the flames and wind.
"If we can, we'll put units ahead of it on a roadway if it's a large fire," Marbut said.
Crews from several towns finished their work shortly after midnight. The full extent of damage and the cause of the fire are still unknown.
