Discarded ashes from a fireplace caused a grass fire that damaged a structure in Springdale late Friday afternoon, according to the Springdale Fire Department.
The department responded to a call at about 4:30 p.m. of a grass fire that was threatening structures on the 1900 block of Dogwood Place. Grass, a fence and a metal shed caught on fire. The fire did not spread to any houses or to another nearby shed, according to the fire department.
Crews had the fire under control within five minutes of arriving on scene.
No one was injured. The fire was started when ashes from a fireplace were discarded outside, a Springdale Fire Department captain said.
