The New Prague Fire Department battled a grass fire on the city's north side for three hours Sunday, March 22.

New Prague Fire Chief Jim Becker said the department received the call around 2 p.m. for the fire that started off of English Avenue and spread to a grassy area outside of town to the northwest. Winds were a factor in spreading the fire. The Jordan Fire Department was called in to provide mutual aid. No injuries were reported. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

There were two other calls for the week.
