Rain helps contain 7,100-acre grass fire in Park Rapids area
PARK RAPIDS, Minn. – A 7,100-acre grass fire that consumed 64 buildings last week is contained. Weekend rains helped departments get the fire under control.
“We got rain, and that’s excellent,” Jeff Edmonds, spokesman for the state Department of Natural Resources, said over the weekend. “It’s quieted things down. We have crews out there. We’re going to be winding it down and handing it back to the local Park Rapids area office in the next few days.”
