A catalytic converter on a car ignited grass along the road one-half mile north of the junction of Oklahoma 11 and Oklahoma 132 in Grant County Wednesday afternoon.

A mutual aide call from the Hawley Fire Department sent Grant and Alfalfa counties fire units to help extinguish the grass fire burning out of control. Wind gusts more than 30 mph helped fan the flames.

"The fire quickly got out of control," said Hawley Fire Chief Robert Moore. "We also had a home with several buildings and an oil well in the path of the fire. I would estimate the fire burned around 300 acres of pasture land."

Units from Hawley, Nash, Wakita, Manchester, Med-ford, Pond Creek and Nesca-tunga battled the fire.
