A Grass fire damaged a home east of Hutchinson.  It happened around 2:00 p.m. Monday afternoon in the 800 block of Barnes Lake Road.

In a news release, the Hutchinson Fire Department said crews responded and found an out-of-control grass fire that had extended to one home and threatened three others as well as multiple sheds.  

Fire Chief Steve Beer said the fire spread to a row of cedar trees which then jumped a driveway and spread into an adjacent wooded area.

Beer said the fire started after a homeowner was burning a small ditch that quickly got out of control. 

There were no injuries from the fire.
