Grass Fire

Posted: Updated:

What an official says started as a spark from a train escalated to a grass fire that burned about 50 acres today.

Minot Rural and city fire crews along with Burlington and Des Lacs fire crews responded to the blaze around 10:30 this morning.

Minot Rural Fire Chief, Rex Weltikol, says the fire started north of the Minot Landfill and the wind pushed the flames through a coulee and burned toward the landfill.

Weltikol says the crews were on scene for just under 2 hours putting the fire out.

No damage was caused by the fire.
