Firefighters knock out grass fire southeast of Lander

Lander Rural and City firefighters this afternoon were called to Tumbleweed Drive, just south of the Rawlins junction, for a grass fire. Lander Rural Fire Chief Nick Johnson said the fire was caused when wind picked up embers from a burn pile. He said the landowners had mowed around the pile to prevent its spreading, but the afternoon breeze carried some embers a little further.
