Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Fire officials in Ransom County say they were able to contain a grass fire that got out of control when someone was burning garbage.

It burned more than 400 acres, much of it in the Sheyenne National Grasslands.

We first told you about it Tuesday and crews spent the night checking for hot spots. Today, nearly a dozen counties in the state have put burning restrictions in place because it's so dry.
