Fire threatens addition in west Oklahoma City

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Firefighters from Oklahoma City and Yukon are battling a grass fire apparently started by an Oklahoma Highway Patrol car in western Oklahoma City Tuesday afternoon.

Officials say authorities searching from the air for illegal immigrants who ran from police after a traffic stop Tuesday morning thought they spotted one of the immigrants. An Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper drove into a field where the person was and the heat from the patrol car apparently set the grass on fire.

Authorities say the person who was spotted turned out NOT to be one of the suspected illegal immigrants.
