BUG Fire battles third grass fire in three days -- UPDATED

An acre of land was torched by a grass fire in the town of Brussels on Tuesday.  Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Chief Curt Vandertie says his department was dispatched shortly before 1 pm to County Road D in Brussels for a ditch fire.  The blaze spread quickly due to the high grass and took about 1,200 gallons of water to put out.  Vandertie says he suspects the fire was caused by a discarded item outside of a vehicle window since the blaze started near the roadside.

 

 

This marks the third consecutive day his crews have dealt with grass fires in the area. 

 

UPDATE:  The grass fire in a nearby wooded area reignited on Wednesday afternoon ut was quickly extinguished around 3 p.m., according to Vandertie.
