Large Grassfire Threatened Homes

Firefighters fought to control a large grass fire Saturday afternoon near Rivercrest Road in Redland.

The fire destroyed several acres but firemen were able to contain the grass fire with a bulldozer before it spread to nearby homes.

The fire burned for nearly an hour because volunteer firefighters were overcome by dangerous hot temperatures.
