Small grass fire extinguished northwest of Emporia

Americus and Emporia firefighters knocked down a grass fire Wednesday afternoon.

Fire crews were called to the 400 block of Road 200, about four miles northwest of Emporia, at around 4:30 pm.

Initially, according to Emporia Battalion Chief Steve Kuhlmann, Americus crews were paged out but the fire was actually in Emporia's district.

Kuhlmann says the fire apparently started near a power pole, but the exact cause is unclear. Roughly four acres of grass and a few trees burned.

Debbie Davis owns the property. No injuries were reported.
