Firefighters say Wednesday's windy and dry conditions turned a shed fire into a fast-moving grass fire in Tulsa.

A man working on oil equipment spotted the fire around 4:15 Wednesday afternoon on Lookout Mountain near west 41st street and south 33rd West Avenue. They say the fire quickly spread into the nearby woods, and down a ravine.

The remote location made things more difficult.

"There's no water supply up here on top of this hill, so we were having to shuttle water from hydrants down below,” said Justin Weber with the Tulsa Fire Department.

Firefighters say they think the fire was accidental, and no one was hurt.
