Apparent arson burns 10 acres in Olathe

A fire that appears to have been intentionally set burned about 10 acres of grass near 119th Street and Ridgeview Road in Olathe on Wednesday afternoon.

Fire crews from Olathe, Lenexa and Johnson County Fire District 1 fought the blaze about 4:45 p.m. and protected houses to the east of the fire.

There were no injuries. Olathe will mow the grass next to the burned area to reduce fuel for a fire.
