“We’ve had four grass fires in the last couple weeks. The largest was 40 acres. It happened when someone had a burning permit, but the fire got away from them. The wind picked up and the fire just got away,” said Chatfield Fire Chief Keith Bradt. While cooler wet weather has helped relieve the situation somewhat, Bradt did report a number of fires that the department has extinguished in the past month due to dry vegetation and low humidity common in early spring here in Minnesota.
