An initial report of a structure fire, just east of Troy, last Thursday afternoon actually was a minor grass fire near the 1800 block of Highway 36, east of Wathena near Blair, according to Troy Fire Chief Allen Winkel.

The fire chief said the Troy department was dispatched at 2:24 p.m. on a report of a structure fire near the roadside park.

“The burn ban was on. We sent two pumpers, two brush trucks and  a tanker unit to provide a water supply source. However, before our guys even got to the roadside park area, they were notified of the actual location, and that it was a minor fire,” he continued.

Winkel said the Troy department was dispatched because the dividing line with response by the Wathena fire department is Peck Road. He added that the burn ban was in effect that day from 1 to 4 p.m.
