Fire forces some home evacuations near Lake McConaughy

KEITH COUNTY, Nebraska (AP) — Some rural homes near Lake McConaughy had to be evacuated in western Nebraska because of a nearby grass fire.

The Nebraska State Patrol evacuated a small number of homes on the north side of Lake McConaughy Sunday because of a large grass fire.

More than 15 fire departments were called to respond to the blaze Sunday after it rekindled around midday Sunday in Keith County. It was originally reported around 11 p.m. Saturday.

Authorities were asking people to stay away from Lake McConaughy on Sunday so fire crews could reach the area.
