Crews are battling a grass fire in the 12000 of W. Hefner Rd. in Yukon, Sunday evening. 

Firefighters were called to the scene around 5 p.m. Once on scene, crews had difficult time fighting the fire because they say grass was four to six feet tall in some areas.

Traffic control was put in place at W. Hefner Rd. and N. Mustang Rd. Due to high winds, crews were concerned the fire was at risk of jumping the road.

It is unclear how the fire was started. Authorities did not say if any structures are being threatened.

As of 7:30 p.m. firefighters had control of the fire, though it was not fully extinguished.
