Grass fire burns south of Nevis
Nevis firefighters battled a persistent grass fire south of the city Tuesday evening.
Firefighters were called to a ditch off County Road 33 around 5 p.m.
Recent high winds and sun have made fields and ditches tinder dry.
The fire burned a patch of ditch, then, fanned by light winds, headed into a nearby stand of trees.
Nevis firefighters were assisted by DNR Forestry firefighters
