Grass Fire Destroys 4 Mobile Homes (Jun 22, 2011)

HARRAH, Okla. (AP) — Authorities say four mobile homes have been destroyed by a grass fire near Harrah.

Oklahoma County Commissioner Brian Maughan said the Newalla Fire Department received a call about 2 p.m. Wednesday of a blaze in a wooded area in the eastern part of the county. Maughan says there have been no reports of injuries, but residents of the mobile home park were asked to leave as crews worked to extinguish the blaze.

He says firefighters had the fire about 90 percent contained, and worked into the afternoon to put hotspots.

Maughan says firefighters believe the fire started in the wooded area around the mobile home park, which sits adjacent to some businesses and other residences.

He says the businesses and other residences weren't threatened.
