Grass fire north of Regina

April 27, 2018, Sask. – Smoke was visible in the Regina area for much of last evening as firefighters battled an extensive grass fire north of the city.

Emergency crews from Regina and surrounding communities were called out when flames that later reached about a metre in height broke out east of Lumsden yesterday afternoon.

The fire was whipped along by a strong wind and although it was suppressed, firefighters kept watch overnight to watch for flare-ups.

There's no immediate word on property damage.
