The Gravois Fire Protection District responded to a fire in a hay field on Troutdale Road near the end of Tiara Lane and J Road that burned over 100 acres of property and causes some minor damage to an adjoining property. Seventy of those acres were hay fields and 30 were timber. According to Gravois Fire Protection District Fire Chief Ed Hancock, the crews made a direct attack on the fire with fire trucks pumping water and rolling across the field at the same time as firefighters working hand-lines. Several structures endangered by the fire were saved. The cause of the fire though thought to be ignited by a cigarette was ruled accidental not negligent.
