A grass fire was reported near the Orchard, north of Emporia Friday.

At about 1:25 p.m., scanner traffic indicated a grass fire at 2173 Road N north of Emporia. Dispatch indicated the fire was a controlled burn which got out of control. About one acre was said to be on fire within 20 yards of a structure.

At 1:45 p.m., crews on scene indicated mutual aid could cancel.

The fire did re-kindle about an hour later, but it was again quickly put out.
