Tulsa Pumpkin Town Fire Ruled Arson
TULSA, Oklahoma - Investigators say a fire that destroyed a shed at a popular Green Country attraction was set deliberately. Tulsa Fire Department announced arson as the cause of the Sunday evening fire at the Pumpkin Town near 61st and Garnett.
Firefighters said putting the fire out was made more difficult because the building is so far away from the road and on to of steep hill.
"There's not very many hydrants nearby and it's up the hill. So we had a little bit of issue getting up the hill," said Ross Beach with TFD.
Crews said that there was some concern because of the nearby dry grass, but that thankfully the fire did not spread.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
Pumpkin Town is a local popular fall attraction for families and houses thousands of pumpkins at the site.
