What started out as a controlled burn turned into a grass fire that has forced some residents to voluntarily leave their homes.

They’re burning land near Fountain Green and Sandcreek road in Hutchinson. Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks officials discovered the flames jumped a road.

Fire crews from several different departments are helping put the unintentional grass fire out.

There are no reports of injuries or structures being damaged at this time.
