RAPID CITY, SD -
Nobody was injured and no structures damaged in a small grassfire that scorched 2 1/2 acres near a Rapid City neighborhood.
About 20 firefighters responded to the fire Saturday afternoon near the corner of Enchanted Pines Drive and Kiowa Lane, on a hill overlooking the south side of town.
Rapid City Police Sgt. Warren Poaches says the fire started when two boys, ages 9 and 11, began playing with matches in their backyard.
No charges have been filed against the children. Says Poaches, ""A lot of times those things can be taken care of with a firm hand from the parents."
