Sign of Spring: Grass Fire Outbreak

It's a sign of spring we could live without. Grass fires have started popping up across the area.

This afternoon firefighters from Lawton, Moville and Bronson pitched in with hoses and grass fire rigs to fight a fast-moving blaze along Garner Avenue near Moville.

At one time, the fire was more than a mile long and three-quarters of a mile wide, before crews were able to bring it under control and eventually snuff out the flames.
