MIDLAND COUNTY - Fireworks are getting the blame for a grassfire in Midland County on Friday afternoon.

Several stations were called out to East County Road 120, around three o'clock.

Fire crews from Greenwood, Midland County and the City of Midland knocked out the flames in about 20 minutes, but they spent the next hour or so putting out the hot spots.

The two men setting off the fireworks were each given a ticket for reckless endangerment.
