Grass Fire in Frederick, Colo.

FREDERICK, Colo. — Firefighters worked to extinguish a grass fire not too far from Frederick High School on Wednesday afternoon.

Firefighters said it was a controlled burn that got out of hand because of gusty winds.

The fire generated a plume of smoke that was visible from many miles. It was in a field about one mile east of Interstate 25.

Crews managed to get the fire under control late Wednesday afternoon.
