Lincoln Firefighters responded to a grass fire near a cornfield between 27th & 33rd Streets just south of Superior Street around 10:45 a.m. Monday.

By 11:30 a.m. the fire appeared under control although smoke is still billowing. 10/11's Bonney Bowman sees charred grass down the embankment that runs near 27th Street.

LFR Assistant Chief Pat Borer says that a transient discarding a cigarette caused the grass fire.

There was a small group of tents in the area where the transients lived.

No arrests or citations.

5-10 acres of grass and small trees burned. No monetary damage. The fire never actually touched the corn field.
