EDMOND, Oklahoma - The Oklahoma Highway Patrol and Edmond Fire officials are on the scene of a large grass fire near the 143 mile mark on the Turner Turnpike.

The grass fire began near NE 150rd and Hiwassee Road around 4:00 p.m. The windy conditions pushed the fire toward Edmond.

Multiple homes were threatened by the blaze. A few flat bed trailers were charred while fire fighters fought to control the flames.

The fire spread over 3 miles along the turnpike, but Edmond and Oklahoma City firefighters have put out the major hot spots.

Fire officials are investigating what started the grass fire.
