Even though the ground is wet there was a brush fire Friday afternoon in Bureau County.

Fire crews from Bureau and DePue responded to the fire at 2650 East Street northwest of DePue.  The caller had concerns about the fire spreading to a nearby barn full of cardboard.  Crews put the blaze out before it hit the barn.

Firefighters had the blaze out within a half hour.
