According to Shawnee Heights Fire District Battalion Chief Scott Price, helped put out three grass fires of their own and assisted the City on another one.

All of these fires have been kept to grass and have not damaged any structures.

Price says people get a false sense of security when winds are light like they are today and underestimate teh humidity.
