Rock Rapids, Iowa — On Wednesday, the Rock Rapids Fire Department was called to a ditch fire that burned into some CRP ground near 160th Street and Jackson Avenue, at about 3:45 p.m.

That’s five miles east and a mile south of Casey’s in Rock Rapids. Rock Rapids Fire Chief Ed Reck says the owner had done some burning a few days before, and the wind switched, causing the fire to go where it was not wanted. Reck says Rock Rapids firefighters put out the fire with water and fire flappers.

No injuries were reported, and firefighters wrapped up their efforts in about 45 minutes. He says about three or four acres of the CRP ground burned.
