Dean Wildfire

A fire broke out Tuesday afternoon in the Dean Dale area.

Volunteer Firefighters from Dean, Charlie, Petrolia, & Jolly helped to contain the fire to a wheat field before it spread to a heavier brushed area. The fire was put out in about an hour.

A Clay County Sheriff's Deputy said the fire was near FM 2393 and 1740.

The fire is still under investigation but they believe the cause of the blaze was sparks from one of the many oil derricks on the property.
