Hundreds of acres burned when a wind whipped grass fire swept through a farmstead in rural Gilby (ND) Tuesday. The blaze started shortly before four p-m near County Road 33 and County 3. Smoke from the fire reduced visibility - closing a stretch of County 33 in Grand Forks County. The plume of smoke was visible as far away as the city of Grand Forks. Fire teams from Gilby…Larimore…and Manvel were on the scene. No structures were damaged.
