Southeast Lincoln Grassfire Threatens Several Homes
A resident's burn pile started a grass fire Wednesday afternoon near 60th and Saltillo Road in Southeast Lincoln. Southeast Rural Fire officials say it threatened several homes, damaging siding on one house and burning a barn. One man was treated for smoke inhalation after trying to put the fire out with a hose. Southeast Rural Fire Chief, John Wiese says no one should be burning because it's just too dry. This is not a photo of the actual grassfire.
