Barnesville, MN (WDAY TV) -- Multiple fires broke out this afternoon near Barnesville.

Officials say it started as a control burn but quickly got out of hand. Nearly a dozen fire fighters battled the flames using four wheelers equipped with high pressure hoses to smother the blaze.

Crews say, it's not windy but when a fire starts in this dry weather sparks can light up a field. Tonight, the fire is under control.
