Arkansas City Fire-EMS Department firefighter-Paramedic Nick Jindra uses the grass fire truck’s hand line to put water on a grass fire Tuesday while ACFD Lt. Jon Clawson drives the truck. The report of the grass fire, which was located just west of 21st Road on the north side of U.S. 166, came in at 4:24 p.m. Around 3 acres were burned and the cause was an electrical line that had sparked. Two grass fire trucks responded to the fire.

An ACFD grass fire truck also responded to an earlier grass fire southeast of town at 3:14 p.m. That fire was located somewhere in the vicinity of the 1200 block of 322nd Road. Less than an acre was burned and the cause of that fire was unknown.
