EL DORADO, Kan. (KSNW) – A controlled burn in Butler County got a little out of control Monday and caused a wreck.

Smoke from the fire got so bad that officials had to close Kansas Highway 254 just west of El Dorado.

Officials said some people were hurt in a multi-car accident, but the injuries weren’t too serious. The road opened once the fire was back under control.
