SPERRY, OK -- Warm weather and high winds are fueling grass fires all over the area.    

In Sperry, at least four separate fires flared up, some as large as 20 acres.

No homes or buildings were burned, and no one was hurt.

Authorities are looking into the possibility of arson.

Four fire departments had to be called in to fight two grass fires in Rogers County. Crews say the fires burned about 50 acres each.

In the past two days, fires have scorched more than 200 acres in the area.
