ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) A pair of grass fires in Stearns County over the weekend.

Sheriff John Sanner says the Kimball Fire Department was called out to a fire at Highway 15 and Dellwood Road in Maine Prairie Township just before noon Saturday. They were able to knock down that fire in about fifteen minutes.

While they were fighting that fire, another call of a grass fire came in--this time on County Road 141 east of Highway 15 in St. Augusta. The fire involved grass in a wooded area, along with hay bales just off County Road 141. That fire was knocked down by fire departments from St. Augusta, Rockville and Kimball. Crews were on the scene for about three-and-a-half hours.
