Grass fires in Osage and Washington counties are still burning Monday morning. Residents will smell smoke and can see the haze in the air.

Osage SkyNews 6 HD pilot Will Kavanagh flew overhead as wild horses escaped a fire line about five miles north, northwest of Ochelata Monday morning. Strong south winds continue at 20 to near 30 mph.

The fire began burning Sunday and continues in the rural area near the border of the two counties. Video shows the horses crossing a stream with ranchers nearby to help.

The horses don't appear to be in any danger as they can get to land that has already been burned.
