Wildfire burns 200 acres in southeast Kansas


COWLEY COUNTY, Kan. (KSNW) – Nearly 200 acres burned Saturday in rural Cowley County, just outside the town of Udall.

Cowley County Fire 4th District chief Randy Hoffman says the blaze started around 2 p.m. after a vehicle caught fire in a pasture.

Mulvane, Belle Plain, Winfield and Atlanta fire crews came in to help. They say they got the fire under control, and finally called fire crews off by 4:30 in the afternoon.

Dry conditions contributed to the spread of the fire. Fire crews remind you to not wait, but call immediately if you see a fire.
