Firefighters from both Tulsa and Osage Counties responded to grass fires between Sperry and Turley. 

The grass fire broke out around 1:30 near Osage Drive and 63rd Street North on private property. It was a very rural area, which made it difficult to get to. Firefighters say they're not sure how it started but the fire spread quickly to at least 10 old cars that were being stored on the property.

Firefighters say they were able to stop the fire from hitting a nearby house and finally put it out when it got close to the tree line. Both Sperry and Black Dog Fire were on the scene as well.

"We got a page for a grass fire. We had multiple vehicles on fire, had fire walking up the hill," said Black Dog firefighter Jack Spurrier.

According to firefighters at the scene, the fire started on private land. They say it started as a grass fire but then spread to what appears to be a junkyard.
