Skywarn 6 has warned you about the potential fire hazards emanating from warm temperatures and dry air.
This week much of Texoma has been under a Red Flag Warning, and today we learned again why that matters - a small welding spark ignited a grass fire that blazed around the Jack and Clay County lines.
It happened around 4pm this afternoon on Feed Road in Bellevue just a few miles east of Route 148.
Firefighters say a welder started to emit many sparks and ignited a grass fire that spread around more than a hundred yards.
The dry elements on the ground enabled the flames to quickly ignite more territory in its tracks, including a pickup truck.
Henrietta, Vashti, Clay and Jack County Fire Departments all contributed units and firefighters to tame the blaze.
