Fire burns Cottage Grove cornfield
A fire burned part of a harvested cornfield and threatened a field of standing cornstalks on a windy Wednesday afternoon in Cottage Grove.
Firefighters from Cottage Grove and St. Paul Park were called to the fire in a field on the north side of 80th Street and east of Keats Avenue around 3 p.m. The land is owned by the Tank family.
The fire was mostly under control within about a half-hour.
