LOVE COUNTY, OK--  Firefighters tell us a wildfire spread for quite a while consuming at least 1500 acres of land. 

The fire started around noon on Sunday, at the bottom of the Red River and quickly began to spread along the river, east of Marietta.

Firefighters from several departments battled the fire for more than eight hours.

Fire crews say it started getting into an area where they couldn't get to it, so they had to wait.

So far, we're told no one has been injured and no structures have been threatened.

Chief Coyle says they sent most of the firefighters home for the night because the fire seemed to stop spreading.

There is still no word on what started the fire.
