— Small grass fires along Broadway have caused a rush-hour traffic jam.

Flames broke out after 5 p.m. on the grass along the railroad tracks that parallel Broadway to the west through Edmond. The fires are near 15th Street.

Although the fires are relatively small, they have caused a traffic nightmare, as they broke out during rush-hour traffic.

Fire officials said they are working to extinguish the flames and will continue to monitor hot spots. There are many businesses in the area, but none appeared to be in imminent danger, officials said.
