TOPEKA, Kan (WIBW)__ People could see the smoke for miles from a large grass fire Saturday atop Huntoon hill at Urish...

Mission Township Fire crews were on the scene of a controlled fire Saturday morning at the south-east corner of Urish and Huntoon.

Crews say they extinguished the fire, but a gust of wind sparked it again.

The burn lasted until about noon.
