ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) St. Cloud Fire Marshal Mike Post says a grass fired that burned eight to ten acres Sunday afternoon is being investigated as a possible arson.

The fire near the 2500 block of Serenity Drive was called in just before 5:30.

Fire departments from St. Cloud, St. Augusta, Sauk Rapids and Waite Park fought the fire. No structures were damaged and there were no injuries.

Post says two kids who appeared to be middle school-aged were seen running from the area. One of them was wearing a white shirt with a red cap.

A reward is being offered for information that solves the fire. The arson hotline number is 1-800-723-2020. Callers can remain anonymous.
