Two buildings, grass and hay were destroyed by fires Sunday afternoon.

Deputies were dispatched Sunday to the 5000 block of 32nd Road for a report of a fire involving an older barn. The barn was totally destroyed.

They later were dispatched Sunday to the 11000 block of 152nd Road for a report of a grass fire that had spread to a barn. The barn and 100 bales of hay were lost.

Despite recent fires, no burn ban is planned for the city or the county at this time, according to Winfield Fire Chief Alan Stoll and County Administrator Jeremy Willmoth.
