BELOIT (AP) - Falling embers from fireworks in Beloit caused a grass fire.
Fire department Captain Scott Fisher says firefighters were called at about 9:50 p.m. Wednesday to the launch area for the city's fireworks. The fire was contained to grass and brush, and nobody was injured.
He tells The Janesville Gazette reports the fire department did a controlled burn of as much of the area as it could Sunday, but the fire was able to take off in the untouched areas.
He says the fire department responded to other reports of small fires around the city Wednesday night as people shot off banned fireworks.
