Grass fire knocked down in Stafford
A grass field fire covering about an acre erupted at about 11:37 a.m. in Stafford at Sweetland and Roanoke roads. It was moving toward a house.
Stafford Fire Command called for mutual aid from Le Roy, which was just wrapping up a response to a vent fire at a business and an accident in front of Le Roy's Tops. Byron also responded.
The fire was knocked down but then hot spots flared up and had to be snuffed out.
A farmer helped by plowing a furrow around the blaze to help contain it.
Stafford and Byron went back in service at 12:56 p.m.
