Fire Fighters Battle Another Grass Fire

(Le Mars) -- The Le Mars Fire-Rescue Department responded to another grass fire over the weekend.  Fire officials responded to an alarm Saturday afternoon at about 12:15 p.m.  The fire was a control burn that got out of control at Lynch Livestock 16694 Madison Ave.  Upon arrival, firefighters found a large burn pile that had got out of control when the wind switched directions.  Firefighters cooled down a retaining wall and tamed the flames so that the radiant heat did not ignite the building located nearby.  Firefighters responded with three trucks and 10 firefighters.  5000 gallons of water was used to calm the blaze.   Firefighters were on scene for one hour and there were no injuries.
