Mon 5-3-2021

(Superior)-- Several area fire departments spent the better part of their Sunday afternoon battling grass fires, and in one case, a grove fire.

One of the more significant fires was northeast of Superior, in the area of 130th Street and 340th Avenue, just about right on the Dickinson-Emmet county line. Fire departments from Superior, Estherville and Spirit Lake battled that grass fire for several hours Sunday.

No injuries were reported and no structures were reportedly threatened.

Officials say the fires resulted from controlled burns that got out of hand.
