Grass fire torches nearly 200 acres of CRP land near Sunburg
SUNBURG -- A brush fire that got out of control roared across rolling hills of tinder-dry prairie grass and trees Wednesday afternoon in a secluded area northeast of Sunburg.
It's estimated that 150 to 200 acres of land that was enrolled in the Conservation Reserve Program was burned in the quick-moving fire that jumped the property lines of several neighbors.
No structures were destroyed and no one was injured.
