The El Dorado fire department was paged out to an out of control, controlled grassland fire yesterday and then again today.
Farmers who have burned their pastures as far back as they can remember without problem have found things different this year. This year the old dead grassland is extremely dense.
Today the out of control fire was at SW 20th and Boyer Road.
Those needing to burn need to be extra careful. Take some additional safety steps just to be sure it doesn’t get out of control.
