Grass fire burns about 3 acres as snowless winter continues
A relatively snowless winter so far and dry conditions continue to make late season grass fires a concern even though a clipper system promises to bring a couple of inches of snow to the lakes area this week.
Brainerd firefighters responded to a grass fire off Hay Creek Road in the South Long Lake area about 10 miles south of Brainerd about 12:37 p.m. Wednesday. The fire burned 2 to 3 acres in a mostly wooded and swamp area off a farm field.
