Large Grass Fire

Large Grass Fire

WINNIPEG - A large grass fire west of Carberry on Thursday afternoon forced the evacuation of almost two dozen houses.

The fire burned for several hours but was put out without anyone getting hurt, although one of the homes was destroyed.

The evacuees have since been allowed to return to their properties.

RCMP say the flames spread quickly because of dry and windy conditions.
