Grass fire season has begun

Detroit Lakes firefighters respond to a grass fire Tuesday afternoon off of Canyon Boulevard, east of the Minnesota State Community and Technical College. According to Detroit Lakes Fire Chief Jeff Swanson, this was the first grass fire the department has responded to this season, although countrywide grass fires have been reported all week. Swanson said conditions are dry and he expects a burning ban will be implemented in Becker County soon.
