MCPHERSON COUNTY- Multiple fire departments we're called to a large grass fire in Mcpherson County Sunday afternoon, in a rural area a few miles south and west of Lindsborg.

No injuries or building damage have been reported at this time.

Fire crews from 10 different departments and 43 trucks battle the grass fire.

Marquette's fire chief says some ashes from a controlled burn earlier in the week reignited and spread because of the wind. Crews used a controlled burn to help contain the wild fire. By 730 p.m., officials say they had the fire out.
