The Kimball Volunteer Fire Department battles a small grass fire on Sunday afternoon.

The Kimball Volunteer Fire Department responded to a fire at approximately 2:30 p.m. last Sunday. The Kimball Ambulance Service was also dispatched as a precaution.

Witnesses at the scene, Mia Biberos and Trisha Dimmitt, stated that they found the fire while it was still very small.

They attempted to extinguish it themselves by stomping it and soaking their clothing in the nearby creek, then wringing the water out onto the flames.

When it became apparent that they would not be successful, they ran to a home nearby and asked the occupant, Kiersten Barrett, to call the fire department.
