Large grass fire near Derby contained

SEDGWICK COUNTY, Kan. (KWCH) A controlled burn near Derby quickly spread Sunday evening, forcing first responders to bring in water trucks as they fought through brush and cedar trees

Fire officials say wind and dry conditions are to blame for the fire spreading quickly through trees, brush and grass.

One official say the fire is no longer a threat but crews will stay here overnight to make sure those hot spots are put out.

"So at this point in time, we do have the fire contained. But with the wind change and the way the winds picked up, we're taking extra efforts to get it fully extinguished," said Sedgwick County Fire Chief Carl Cox.

Officials say the fire burned about 10 acres. They also mentioned that they believe they'll keep seeing these types of grass fires until we get more rain or snow.
