- Mt. Morris Fire responds to 5655 N. Mt. Morris Rd. for a field fire -

On March 11, 2017 the Mt. Morris Fire Protection District responded to 5655 N. Mt. Morris Rd. for a report of a burn pile that was spreading to a near by corn field.  When firefighters arrived they found a moderate brush pile that was burning with some fire moving into the picked corn field close by and towards a structure used to store wood.  After a few minutes the fire was brought under control and fire companies wet down the grass around the burn pile to prevent future spread of the fire.
