(UPDATE): Crews Battle Fire in Clay County

Newschannel 6 is working to learn more about a grass fire that could be seen for miles along Hwy 79 and Taylor Rd. in Clay County Wednesday afternoon. 

Crews from Jolly, Arrowhead Ranch Estates and Petrolia were on the scene to battle the blaze that sparked between 2:30 p.m. And 3:00 p.m. 

We have calls in to see how much acreage was lost. 

Be sure to stay with Newschannel 6 for updates. 

UPDATE:

Fire danger continues to be high in Texoma while fire crews have fight to contain the problem.

Officials say the fire that started on Taylor Road in Clay County yesterday is now 90-percent contained. 

A large number of fire crews have been working on the blaze since early yesterday. 

Although the fire has spread to more than 400 acres, crews have managed to avoid the blaze reaching any structures and homes in that community.
