TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Firefighters were able to keep a large grass fire from reaching a group of structures north of Auburn.

Crews from Auburn, Mission Township, and the 190th Air Refueling Wing raced to the area around Southwest 61st Street.

They say the flames were ignited by a brush fire started a few days ago, whose embers caught fire again Tuesday.

They were able to stop the fire before it reached the buildings of two residences.
