Lincoln Rural firefighters in three units were assisted by two Hartsburg-Emden units and firefighters in containing an out-of-control grass fire at the north edge of Sunny Acres/Epperson Addition at about 4 p.m. on Thursday. High, gusty winds whipped sizzling flames, destroying brush and undergrowth for about a mile from Kickapoo Creek north and westward.

Epperson has the highest saturation of houses in the rural districts of the county, with over 100 homes spaced every 56 feet.

Lincoln Rural was called out earlier in the afternoon for a similar incident at 1200 650th Ave.
