A sign of spring: Grass fire jumps over Highway 2 and 71 bypass; blaze under control
David Quam of Bemidji captured video of this grass fire Tuesday afternoon on the U.S. Highway 2 and 71 bypass just south of 5th Street in Bemidji. The fire apparently began in the median, but strong winds helped it jump across the northbound/westbound lane and into the ditch before the Bemidji Fire Department arrived.
