A grassfire spanning several acres on highway G-76 southwest of Attica affected approximately a dozen vehicles and other property in a salvage yard Tuesday afternoon, where crews from Columbia Fire Department, Indiana Township and Knoxville Rural Fire Departments brought the flames under control within an hour. While this fire was still being extinguished, Columbia Fire Department was called to another grassfire just south of Columbia on 103rd Street, where crews extinguished the blaze before it reached an abandoned building.
