State emergency-services officials are warning about a high fire danger for all of western and portions of central North Dakota.
A fire weather watch is in effect for Monday, which means conditions could lead to rapid fire growth and uncontrolled fires.
A grass fire scorched 15-20 acres of land near Logan this evening.
Three homes were at risk, but the fire is nearly contained.
The blaze started around 5:00 near 111th Street Southeast --- just east of Logan.
Ward County Sheriff's Department officials say the homeowners at all three properties were home and worked along side Minot Rural Fire and Sawyer Fire Departments to divert the flames.
He says only minor property damage was sustained, such as melted children's toys outside.
The fire has been contained and crews monitored the property through the evening.
He says the cause of the fire is unknown.
The State Emergency services' fire weather watch includes 22 counties in western North Dakota.
