Grass Fire on I-35 in Iowa

 Smoke could be seen for ten miles as we drove north to Des Moines on our way home. Here is a series of photos as we drove upon it and through the grass fire. We did not see the five fire departments fighting the blaze until we were well through it.

                                            Here is one of the five fire departments.

The news reports said the owners used a garden water hose to save their property.
The grass was burned just yards from the buildings.

 The visibility was poor for a only a short time, a few miles, but we had to 
breath the smokey air.  The strong smoke lingered inside our vehicle until 
 we could drive with our windows open.
