Although several counties in the area were categorized as being “moderate” wildfire danger as of Tuesday (Jan. 10), several grass fires blazed. High winds and damp, but ultimately dry conditions are a couple of sources behind the increasing numbers of grass fires reported Tuesday. More than 10 grass fires were reported before 3 p.m., according to firefighters. Several grass fires were extinguished in Crawford and Sebastian Counties, as well as Sequoyah County.
