Arson suspected in Oklahoma City grass fires

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Fire officials in Oklahoma City suspect arson is to blame for two small grass fires that damaged two homes.

Battalion Chief Kirk Wright says one blaze started before noon Sunday in a field on the city's northeast side and quickly swept toward a nearby home, engulfing it in flames. The second blaze started about two hours later less than a mile away.

Wright says one home was destroyed and the other suffered about $30,000 in damage.

He says arson is suspected because of the proximity of the fires and because there were no roadways near where the fires started.
