Out of control grass fire yesterday in Barton County

Yesterday at approximately 2 PM the Lamar Fire Department was dispatched to a grass fire NW of Lamar. 

Upon arrival there was around 2 acres burned, two travel trailers and a minivan were engulfed in flames.

We responded with a brush truck, pumper, followed by the rescue van and 7 firefighters. A big thanks to Liberal Fire Department for providing water and personnel support.

The fire started at the residents burn barrel. If you burn trash, be sure you stay with it and have a water source handy.
