Multiple fires in Lyon and Cowley counties

KWCH – March 30, 2014

Lyon County dispatch confirms they worked at least five fires in the county.

They say at least one structure was involved.

The Lyon County Sheriff’s office says on social media that multiple districts were working a fire that rekindled on 200 Road East. That is where the structure reportedly caught fire.

Another fire was reported at Road 290 where a caller said hay bales were on fire.

Other areas fires were reported along Road 140, Road F, Road G, Road 175, K-130 and Road 160.

The sheriff’s office says to double check burn areas and to be sure to dump water on hot spots.

Dispatch says most of the fires are grass fires that spread because of the wind.

Cowley County dispatch says they are also working multiple grass fires currently. We will continue to update this story as information comes in.

**I think KWCH meant to say Coffey County instead of Cowley
