Firefighters are battling a ten-acre fire south and west of Sedalia on a hillside near Colorado 67.
Fire information officer Andy Lyon says the fire is about 50 percent contained.
He says the flames are about 100 yards from a home, but that the fire is burning away from the home at the moment.
Lyon says some horses on a neighboring ranch were evacuated as a precaution.
The blaze is burning in mostly scrub oak amid warm temperatures, dry conditions and erratic winds.
A single-engine air tanker is dropping retardant on the flames.
About 60 to 80 firefighters are on the scene.
