Small grass fire doused before it gets to house near The Orchard

Emporia firefighters doused a small blaze that briefly encroached on a house north of town Monday.

The fire was reported a bit after 3 pm at 1170 North Kansas Highway 99, just east of The Orchard. Emporia Fire Battalion Chief Eron Steinlage says a controlled burn in front of the house went out of control and moved towards the house.

Emporia firefighters arrived and handled the fire before it got to the house. Americus, Allen-Admire and Reading fire crews were paged to the scene but were sent back before arrival.

No injuries were reported. Lyon County records show Amanda Pock as the property owner.
