Smoke billows from a grove of trees behind residences off 14th Street West, west of the 1800 block, and east of the grain terminal.

The Devils Lake Rural Fire Department responded to ensure the safety of the residences threatened by the fire.

Lee Gessner from the DLRFD says it was a situation where someone was burning garbage, thought it was out, but the fire rekindled and set the grass ablaze. They were able to put the blaze out and were confident it would stay out this time.

He reminds everyone that the fire index is high in the region and to call the Lake Region Law Enforcement Center if farmers or rural residents are doing any burning of fields in the region.
