On Wednesday morning at approximately 11:40am, the Pella Fire Department received a call about a fire at 1860 Highway G28 located on the east side of a creek on the property. Pella Fire Chief Doug Van Gorkum says that a farmer dumped his burn barrel into the creek before the fire was out. The burn barrel set the vegetation near the creek on fire but Van Gorkum says that they had the fire out in around 45 minutes.
