LAWRENCE, Kan. (WIBW)-- High winds played a large roll in an out of control brush fire along K-10 highway at mile marker eight in between Lawrence and Eudora.

The fire started around 6:30 p.m. Sunday evening. The fire was several acres wide and is under control at this time.

Authorities say high winds added to the fires strength. Some areas in Kansas City saw wind gusts of up to 60 mph.
