OKLAHOMA CITY -

Oklahoma City firefighters battled two separate fires overnight. With the strong winds we've had, this could have been a lot worse.

Then, just a few minutes later, another grass fire popped up right down the road. It was quickly put out.

No structures were damaged.

Overnight, crews also kept a close eye out for any hot spots. Jim Gardner and Bob Mills SkyNews 9 HD were over the scene near S.E. 59th and Douglas. These fires burned near Tinker Air Force Base Tuesday afternoon, but no structures were damaged.
