Original story

BLUE, Okla. -- A grass fire in Bryan County burns more than 80 acres Thursday afternoon. Volunteer firefighters say that the fire, off of Old Highway 70 and Red But Hollow, near Blue, started just before 4:00 p.m. and was still smoldering into the night.

Firefighters tell us an unoccupied trailer house caught fire, so did about 170 to 200 round bales of hay.

As of Thursday night, the fire was under control, and firefighters say their main concern is making sure the wind does not spread the sparks to a house about 200 yards away.

No one was hurt, but firefighters remained on the scene into the night.

Four different departments responded and say the hay will probably burn for the next few days.
