LOVE COUNTY, OK--Investigators are trying to figure out who set multiple grass fires in love county today.

It happened in a field on the corner of Oswalt and pike road near an oil pipe line today just before 3 p.m. 

Fire fighters from nine different agencies worked for several hours to put the fires out.

Fire chief  Wesley Dill from Jim Town says once the fires were out, they found evidence that they were purposely set.

"They was calling for task force out of carter county and ten departments out of love county," Dill said.

Chief Wesley says they've had a lot of problems with arson in the area lately.
