Crews respond to 2 grass fires in Harrold

Posted: Updated:

HARROLD, S.D. (AP) - Harrold Fire Department Chief Treg Cowan says the fire risk remains high in the town Friday after crews responded to two grassfires Thursday night.

Crews from Harrold and Fort Thompson responded to an eight-acre fire south of Big Bend on Thursday night. About an hour later, crews from Harrold and Blunt were called out to a small grassfire reported about six miles west of Harrold.

No one was injured in either fire.

Cowan says recent cool weather is slowing the growth of new, green grass, and the current standing grass remains dry.
