Firefighters battle several grass fires under high winds and dry conditions

Posted:

NEAR SERGEANT BLUFF, Iowa (KTIV) Dry conditions, along with the winds, have caused several grass fires Wednesday.

That includes one fire near Sergeant Bluff, Iowa.  Crews were called to 220th Street and Highway 75 around 3:00 p.m.

As you can see the fire spread to both sides of the road, scorching the ditches.

Authorities say the fire could have been caused by a spark from a nearby train or a cigarette.

The road was also closed for a short time, but has since opened.
