Wind Fuels Idalou Grass Fire

Windy conditions pushed a grass fire across Highway 62-82 east of Idalou Monday afternoon.

Crews from three fire departments spent more than an hour and a half trying to put out the fire that started in the highway median around 2:30 p.m. Flames burned grass and trees and came close to a couple of structures. Westbound traffic was briefly diverted while crews worked to control the flames.

It's not known what started the fire.
