Lighting likely cause of Stafford County grass fires


STAFFORD COUNTY, Kan. (KSNW) – Stafford County fire crews responded to multiple reports of grass fires last night. These fires were likely due to lightning strikes.

One of these fires is large, burning in the area of K-19 and 105th Ave.

After spending all night, crews have been switched out. They continue to monitor the fire that is still active. Fire conditions are milder than last night and are being put out when access can be made due to swamp-like conditions.

In the last two weeks, crews in Reno and Rice counties have battled wildfires due to dry conditions.
