Great Bend Fire Department responded to a grass at 11:50 a.m. Sunday in a vacant lot just north of a house 351 North U.S. 281.
Chief Mike Napolitano said firefighters found grass and evergreen trees on fire. “The fire was quickly knocked down; however, fire crews remained on scene extinguishing hot spots and extinguished several small tree piles that had been exposed to the grass fire,” the chief reported. “The fire did burn under the fence to the north adjacent property. The cause of the fire was the hot ashes and logs from the fireplace that had been dumped outside.”
There was no damage to any buildings.
