SHAWNEE, Oklahoma -

Firefighters responded to four wildfires near Shawnee Friday afternoon.

One wildfire was located along I-40 and Kickapoo in Pottawatomie County.

The fire appeared to have sparked on a patch of grass along I-40 and later spread to Boaties, Inc. on N. Bryan St. near mile marker 185 and 186. 

Boaties' owner, Donnie Romberg, said the wildfire burned $400,000 in boats and equipment. He said he had no insurance on the boats in the yard.

A second fire flared up in a field a 1/2 mile from the boat fire. Crews quickly contained this fire.

Traffic flow on I-40 was not disrupted, and firefighters kept all four fires from crossing the interstate and affecting nearby neighborhoods.

No injuries were reported.
