Strong winds cause problems for firefighters across Michiana


Strong winds have caused some issues with fires Sunday.

We've learned there was a pretty big fire at the Pottawattamie Resort in Hagar township in Berrien County.

We've also been hearing about grass fires here and there throughout Michiana.

One grass fire in Penn Township quickly got out of control and spread to a home.

It happened in the 10,000 block of McKinley.

Firefighters say the grass fire spread to a house, garage, fence, and several yards.

Apparently the homeowner was burning leaves and strong winds caused the fire to get out of control.

About $15,000 thousand in damage was caused.
