Local firefighters responding to grass fires
These days, just about everyone wants things to start turning green outside. Farmington firefighters want that, too -- but for a different reason.
In the past week, the local firefighters have responded to six grass fires. Nine grass or brush fires, technically, since March 17, but six of them were between April 7 and April 14. Of those nine, six have been in Empire township, the other three in the city of Farmington.
