A juvenile shooting fireworks is suspected to have caused a fire in grass and brush at 4 p.m. Monday south of Scheela Field and east of Rainy River Community College.

With the high winds and dry grass, the fire could have been worse had it not been called in when it was, a department spokesman said.

The crew used a newer fire truck with a 75-foot aerial ladder to reach the fire with water, he said.
