Grass Fire Near Meadowlark School

Joe Denoyer - February 27, 2018 5:34 pm

At 3:36 pm Tuesday Liberal firefighters were dispatched for reported small grass fire near Meadowlark Elementary at 15th St. & Calvert Ave. Arriving units found a rapidly spreading grass fire in an open area Northeast of the school. Also responding to the call were units from the Seward County Fire Department. The fire was quickly knocked down and fire units remained on scene for approximately 30 minutes extinguishing the remaining hot spots. Liberal Fire responded with three engines and 11 personnel and Seward County Fire responded with one engine and three personnel. The cause of the fire is undetermined and no exposures were immediately threatened. All units were clear of the scene at 4:20 pm.

The fire departments would like to remind citizens that fire danger will remain extremely high during continued dry conditions and will be increased in periods of moderate to high wind. Please use caution and be vigilant of any activities such as outdoor burning or discarding smoking materials that may contribute to starting a fire accidentally.
