State troopers help detour traffic in northwest Minn. as grass fire reduces visibility

Minnesota State troopers are helping with traffic control in northwest Minnesota on Monday as a grass fire is reducing visibility on the road.

Sgt. Jesse Grabow said troopers are near Highway 2 east of Erskine near the Glacier Ridge National Wildlife Refuge.

Troopers placed a detour for Highway 2 traffic.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources did add several counties on Monday to a spring burn restriction list as the state is experiencing warm, dry weather.
