Grass Fire Burns Dozens Of Acres Near Rochester; Barn Burns But Homes Spared


It’s a searing reminder of the dangers of any kind of open flame in these hot, dry conditions. 

 

A grass fire near Rochester quickly got out of hand Friday, burning more than 200 acres of open field and destroying a barn and shed.  But nearby fire departments stayed on the scene for hours and kept the fire from damaging any homes in the area. 

 

Authorities are still trying to determine how the blaze started.
