Wednesday's high winds had Guymon Firefighters working hard to gain control of a grass fire that sparked from a metal worker's torch according to reports.
Three fire units from the Guymon Fire Department, responded to the grass fire, 1/4th mile south of Guymon, during the noon hour.
The fire, just west of the Texas County Detention Center, originated from near the property, where hot embers from the torched metal, caught nearby grass and other materials on fire. The hired metal worker, Keith Harp of Elkhart, Kan., was reportedly cutting metal into scrap when the fire began.
