Training Officer Jesse Richmond said it was in the area of 108th Street and Highway 65 which includes a portion of the eastern city limits of Spickard. No structures were threatened.

According to Richmond, the blaze began with the burning off C-R-P ground; then it proceeded through pasture and into some trees while conditions were very windy.

Richmond stated one firefighter, who requested the name not be used by the media, received an injury due to getting too close to the fire when a flareup occurred.

He said the individual received minor burns to the face and arms; and was treated and released at the scene by personnel from the Grundy County Ambulance.

Spickard's department had 18 people respond to the fire alarm. Grundy county rural fire protection district responded on a mutual aid request with ten people.

Grundy County remains under an advisory against open burning due to the dry and sometimes windy, conditions.

Richmond added that by order of the Spickard Fire Protection District Board, persons planning ANY burning within the Spickard District are requested to first contact the fire department at 485-6133. That's the emergency phone number but it will be answered. This includes contractors planning a controlled burn, or others with the outdoor burning of trash, are requested to notify Spickard with their name, name of the owner if different from the person calling, the time, location, and type of burn planned.

The Grundy County Sheriff's office as well as the Missouri State Highway Patrol assisted with traffic control due to dense smoke across Highway 65.
