The Fort Pierre Fire Department responded to two grass fires over the weekend.  Fort Pierre Fire Chief Rick Cronin says the first fire call came in to responders about 2:45 a.m. Saturday morning.  Fire crews put out a blaze in a ditch along Highway 1806 south of Fort Pierre.   That fire scorched a 30 X 30 foot patch of grass and firefighters were at the site for about thirty minutes.

Later Saturday afternoon about 1:30 p.m., Cronin says the department was told of another fire in the ditch along Highway 1806 south of Fort Pierre that burned about 2-3 acres.  Firefighters were at the second fire location for over an hour.

No one was injured in the weekend fires and no structures were threatened.
