OOLOGAH, Okla. (AP) — Firefighters had to battle the heat as well as a large grass fire near Oologah in northeast Oklahoma.

A firefighter was treated for heat exhaustion at a hospital and four others were treated at the scene for heat exposure Thursday afternoon. A woman answering the phone at the North West Rogers County Fire Department says the firefighters weren't seriously hurt.

The woman, who wouldn't identify herself, said firefighters were "mopping up" at the site of the blaze Thursday evening. She says no homes were damaged or had to be evacuated.

The woman didn't know how many acres burned.
