Firefighters battle large field fire west of Blodgett

BLODGETT, Mo. (KBSI) – Firefighters worked Tuesday afternoon to put out a large field fire west of Blodgett.

It happened along County Road 425.

This comes a day after the Scott County Rural Fire Protection District posted an urgent reminder on their Facebook page saying the county is under a burn ban due to dry conditions.

They say firefighters are worn out because they have been extremely busy fighting trash fires despite the ban.
