Hundreds of acres burn in Butler County wildfire

KWCH – February 17, 2017


Crews from seven fire departments worked a wildfire in Butler County on Friday.

The El Dorado Fire Department says the fire started on the north side of the turnpike, about a mile north of El Dorado.

The fire department said moderate winds, and tall and dense grassland hampered efforts to battle the blaze.

Two homes and livestock were threatened, but crews were able to save them from damage and injury.

The fire burned about 200 acres and 50 bales of hay.
