    OWASSO, Okla. - A 7-year-old boy alerted his father to a grass fire he saw outside an apartment complex while he was walking his dog on Saturday.

    The fire happened outside the Villas at Bailey Ranch Apartments in Owasso.

    The boy’s father then called Owasso firefighters as he tried to throw dirt on the fire to stop it.

    Strong winds caused the flames to spread quickly, and they reached the other side of one of the buildings before firefighters arrived.
