McHenry firefighters extinguish small grass fire in Holiday Hills

HOLIDAY HILLS – The McHenry Township Fire Protection District spent about 15 minutes putting out a grass fire in Holiday Hills on Monday night, an official said.

A McHenry fire official said the fire began just before 8 p.m. on the 1600 block of South River Road was smaller than 25 feet by 25 feet, although it looked bigger when firefighters first arrived.

The fire was in the back of a gravel pit area, and the only thing that caught on fire was the long grass. The cause of the fire is still unknown, according to the fire official.

The Nunda Rural Fire Protection District also was called to the scene, according to scanner traffic.
