Guymon, Oklahoma - As of Monday evening, fire crews in Guymon are still putting out hot spots, leftover sparks from the massive fire that swept across Texas County late Sunday night into early Monday morning.

At least three homes burned to the ground, along with four businesses.

Crews are still assessing the damage, and by the time they're done, they expect to add dozens of homes and businesses to the damaged list.

No one was seriously injured, although 12 people were checked into the emergency room.

Officials believe the fire was caused in a very dry corn field. They think high winds blew one of the corn stalks into the sprinkler engine, catching fire and then setting the entire field on fire.
