KIMBALL - Roughly 2 miles of ditch line west of Valley Road along U.S. 2 was left charred after a grass fire Tuesday afternoon.

The Kimball, Saxon and Hurley Fire Departments and the Department of Natural Resources foresters responded to the blaze.
Montreal was paged, but Samardich said they were called off before they responded.
