SAND SPRINGS, Oklahoma -- Quick action from the Sand Springs Fire Department stopped an intentionally set hay bale fire from spreading to nearby homes.

Crews started a back burn to get the fire under control at South 16th Street and 146th West Avenue in Sand Springs around 1: 30 p.m. Sunday.

"Initially we had some concerns about these mobile homes through here, but we were able to catch the head of it pretty quickly and after that it was burning against the wind," said Sand Springs Fire Captain Dan Call.

Captain Call says he knows who started the fire. The suspects could face second degree arson charges, call said.
