Dry weather and high winds helped to fuel the fire north of Atlanta, Kansas.

Butler County Emergency Management Coordinator Jim Schmidt says the fire was about 15 miles long.

There was concern the fire would spread into Howard, in Elk County.

A large smoke plume could be seen on the KSN Storm Tracker Radar that extends from the fire location into Elk and Greenwood counties.
