A grass fire burned a local property owner’s land in southeast Minot.
The man told us that it all started when he was trying to burn garbage.
He used a cardboard box and laid tree limbs on the top of it.
He said that he started the cardboard box on fire and when the wind picked up – the fire started to spread and got out of hand.
Minot Rural and Burlington Rural fire departments responded to the fire.
We will share more information as we receive it.
