Grass fire contained near New York Mills

A grass fire was reported northwest of New York Mills at 6:42 p.m. on Aug. 8.

The Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office said a farmer who was baling hay had a bearing go out on a piece of equipment. This, in turn, started hay stubble on fire.

The New York Mills Fire Department extinguished the fire within about half an hour.
