WILLMAR -- The Willmar Fire Department was called to a fire Monday evening in the woods in the 1000 block of 16th Street Northeast.
The fire was in the woods behind a four-plex apartment building. While grilling on the west side of the building, some residents started playing with cotton from cottonwood trees. They lit it on fire, and the wind blew it into the woods, starting a fire.
Firefighters were at the scene for about 45 minutes.
