Wildfire season officially underway
The wildfire season started Wednesday in Crow Wing County with a small grass fire on Gull River Road off Gull Lake Dam Road.
The fire, reported shortly before 2 p.m., burned less than an acre of an open grass field surrounded by woods. A few small canopy sheds and wood piles on the property also were burned, but firefighters from Brainerd and the DNR stopped its spread to nearby structures and the surrounding woods.
