RLFR ASSISTS LAUREL FIRE - JUNE 2016
Laurel fire burns 860 acres
A grass fire broke out around 3:30 yesterday afternoon in Laurel. Luckily, no injuries were reported and no structures were damaged in the blaze.
Laurel fire chief Brent Peters said the fire is 100 percent contained.
The flames did manage to burn about 860 acres before they were put out.
Peters says the fire started when a man was using a Swather machine in his fields. The machine caused a spark, and the high winds caused the fire to spread quickly.
