Grass Fire Threatened Damage to Nearby Structures

Posted: Updated:

A controlled fire got out of hand, and a home was threatened as a result.

Multiple fire crews, including Gore Hill, Black Eagle, Sun Prairie, and Ulm responded to the fire in the Woodland Estates neighborhood around 2:30 Monday afternoon.

Gore Hill fire chief Carl Thrasher says about twenty four firefighters and a group of concerned neighbors with hoses quickly got the fire under control and kept it from causing any damage to a near by house.

Thrasher says that the grass and a fence were damaged.

He warns that burn season has begun and those who are burning should be careful.
