HOLLAND — Units of the Holland Volunteer Fire Department responded to a field fire Saturday afternoon southwest of town.
The 4:42 p.m. call sent firefighters to the 10000 block of S. Holland Road Southwest.
Fire Chief Adam Chambers said a grass fire along a ditch line kept firefighters busy for 40 minutes. It was caused by a squirrel making contact with wires on an electric pole. The squirrel was killed but less than a half-acre burned.
Two trucks and seven firefighters went to the scene.
HUNTINGBURG — The report of a possible field fire northeast of Huntingburg sent the Huntingburg Volunteer Fire Department into action at 5:03 p.m. Saturday.

Two trucks and 10 firefighters spent 25 minutes on the run.
HUNTINGBURG — The Huntingburg Police Department arrested Maria R. Perez, 35, of 109 S. Chestnut St., at 7:01 p.m. Friday after a traffic stop in the city.
