(WDAZ-TV) - Crews have been battling a grass fire near the Roseau and Kittson County line since 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The Roseau County Sheriff's office says crews are continuing to contain the fire.

A local fire department official said the fire is "fairly large" and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is helping out.

Authorities couldn't provide the exact location or size of the fire.

The National Weather Service says that low humidity and dry vegetation have fueled the potential for fire across northwest and west central Minnesota through Thursday.

The low humidity will combine with winds of up to 20 to 25 mph, only adding to the dangerous conditions.

North Dakota fire officials say vegetation in the state is not as dry as in Minnesota, so the warnings haven't yet been issued.
