Firefighters from LCFD5 and Bushnell-Johnson Fire Department responded to a brush fire late Tuesday morning that scorched approximately 35 acres of land along Nebraska I-80 just past mile marker 1. The mostly likely cause was a hot object that fell from a vehicle, igniting the dry grass. The blaze was accelerated by the high winds.
