Grass fires continue to pop-up throughout Columbus


At least three yards were on fire today in a neighborhood on Monaco Road in South Columbus, according to authorities.

J.P. Moore was not happy with what he found as he returned home this afternoon. "I noticed that there was a lot of smoke, and my neighbors were telling me that my yard was on fire," he says. "First of all, it scared me, but it also made me a bit angry that someone would deliberately set a fire in our yard."

Around the same time as this incident, more firefighters were dispatched to the Bunker Hill Community along St. Mary's Road, as well as Norstar Drive. Both instances were also grass fires.

In all cases, no injuries have been reported and the fires seem to have been contained to the grass without reaching any structures.

Currently, there is no word of any suspects involved.
