KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A tire caused a grass fire Monday in Johnson County, Kansas.
The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post Monday afternoon that K10 at Edgerton Road was closed for a short period of time because of the blaze that erupted “after a car lost a wheel.”
No injuries were reported.
Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly issued a state of disaster emergency the same day due to “high risk of wildland fires and red flag warnings in several Kansas counties,” according to a news release.
Johnson County was among those counties.
