Fire Department contains brush pile fire

Firefighters Jimmy Christensen and Tom Potts work from the west side to contain the fire.

HARTINGTON – The Hartington Fire Department was called north of town on Tuesday afternoon. Kleinschmit Trucking had a brush pile that was burning, and assistance was required to contain the flames.
Four firetrucks left town around 3:40 PM on Tuesday to handle the call, and all four trucks left the scene just shy of 4:30 PM.
There were no injuries from the fire. If there was any damage, it should be minimal considering the fire never reached the tree tops nor the barn nearby.
Currently, there is no official report from the call.
