Fire Crews Battle Early Morning Grass and House Fire
Winds push an early morning grass fire and catch a home on fire.
Fire crews tell us the strong winds blew a 40 acre grass fire out of control at NW 150th and Rockwell.
When crews arrived they found a large grass fire that was threatening multiple homes. At that time, emergency crews found two men who were stranded and stuck in one of the homes.
Crews say the smoke was so bad, the brothers couldn't get away from the fire.
Emergency crews then worked to evacuate the men, but at that point, the grass fire had caught the home on fire too.
Oklahoma City Fire Battalion Chief Mike Walker says the wind fed the fire, and the dark conditions kept them from being able to get ahead of the fire, because crews couldn't see.
Along with the wind, and reduced visibility, fire crews say they had a difficult time fighting this fire because the home is so large with an unusual stairway.
Crews say a local architect designed the home in an octagon shape and it had wood ceilings.

Wife guilty in Nichols Hills fire chief slaying
May 22, 2013 00:24 GMT
EL RENO, Okla. (AP) -- A jury in El Reno has convicted Rebecca Bryan of the murder of her husband, Nichols Hills Fire Chief Keith Bryan, and recommended a sentence of life in prison without parole.
Jurors reached the Tuesday verdict after about four hours of deliberation.
The 54-year-old Bryan claimed an intruder had shot her husband, though police found her Ruger pistol in a clothes dryer in their home after the shooting.
The gun was matched to the bullet used to shoot Keith Bryan in 2011 at the couple's Mustang home. Police also found a spent shell casing and a left-handed rubber glove wrapped in a bullet-riddled blanket.
The Oklahoman reports (http://is.gd/mvC6Mi ) Bryan didn't display her emotions when the verdict was read. Her lawyer gave her a hug and told her he was sorry.
