LEE’S SUMMIT, Mo. - Fire officials say a grass fire in Lee's Summit along Interstate-470 was likely sparked by a cigarette.
The flames burned three to four acres and closed Pryor Road in both directions at Lowenstein Drive just south of I-470 Monday afternoon. It's now reopen.
A 41 Action News producer spotted the fire a little before 1 p.m. between Pryor Road and the crossroads with US Highway 50.
A concrete barrier was blocking the fire from the road, she said.
A Lee's Summit Fire Department spokesman said no houses were affected.
More than a dozen fire trucks were called to the area.
