    • Grass fire and Christmas lights coming down are first week of the year activities

    • A grass fire and Christmas lights coming down were activities the first week of 2012. Sheldon Carpenter was burning some trash in a burn barrel at his rural residence just southwest of Pratt. The fire in the barrel was low so he went inside the house briefly but when he returned the fire had gotten away from the barrel and was burning across the lawn to the east and towards a shed on the west. Township 12 Firefighters were called and quickly had the fire under control. The only damage was to a food recycle barrel and some hay bales. Pratt light crews were busy removing Christmas lights from the downtown area and putting them away until next year.
