Fire Units Battle Grass Fire at Spainhower Pasture

Sheridan and Grant City fire units battled a grass fire between Grant City and Allendale that started on pasture owned by Chris Spainhower Tuesday, August 7th in 100 degree heat. Larry Bunker's farm crew was mowing the pasture when the fire broke out around 2:00 that afternoon. Aided by a south wind and dry ground, the fire spread north into a neighboring timber before fire units got the blaze under control. The Worth County Fire Auxiliary brought drinks for the fire crews. The fire was under control at around 3:40 that afternoon, although fire crews continued to monitor the scene.
