Fire officials believe a grass fire in northwest Oklahoma City may have been intentionally set early Tuesday morning.

According to the fire department, crews responded to the fire at about 2 a.m. near Council and Wilshire.

Firefighters say about five acres burned, including some fences, a storage shed, and a boat.

Fortunately, fire crews got it under control before it spread to a nearby neighborhood. Firefighters had to use a ladder truck to spray water over nearby homes, because the fire was getting too close.

The fire is under investigation.
