Grass fire destroys 3 yards and garage


A grass fire destroys three yards and spreads to a home and deck Thursday morning.

The fire took place at 2717 Knight Avenue. The backyard of the residence has been burned as well as the home's garage. A neighbor suffered damage to their back yard and their home's siding. That neighbor told a 13 News reporter that he had heard firecrackers throughout the night last night. Another neighbor also heard firecrackers and gave the residents of the home water.

The Rockford Fire Department has not given an official cause for the fire.
