Brush fire re-ignited at DeSoto


A brush fire broke out at DeSoto National Wildlife Refuge Monday afternoon.

This comes just six days after the initial fire, which was caused by a lightning strike to a dead cottonwood tree on Tuesday.

Mutual aid from Missouri Valley and Modale in Iowa, as well as Blair and Fort Calhoun in Nebraska, were called to the refuge. 

The Times-News will have more information as it becomes available.
