10 fire departments from across Harvey County responded to a large grass fire Tuesday afternoon.
The fire burned a roughly 2 mile by one mile field southwest of Walton between NE 48th and NE 60th and Hillside and Oliver. Seven homes were evacuated, but Harvey County Sheriff T. Walton says residents have been allowed to return home.
There were no damages to any homes and no injuries reported. About 40 acres of uncut wheat were destroyed.
Sheriff Walton says the cause of the fire is now under investigation.
