It's been a busy couple of days for fire crews after battling two grass fires on the Perimeter Highway.

The first fire broke out late Sunday afternoon on the west Perimeter Highway near CentrePort Canada Way. It started after a vehicle fire spread to a nearby field, growing to the size of two football fields before crews got it under control. 

On Monday, around 4:30 p.m., the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service responded to a second grass fire near Waverley Street and the Perimeter Highway. 

High winds caused the fire to spread rapidly, covering an area roughly the size of a football field.

Crews used specialized equipment to contain the fire. No injuries were reported, and no property was damaged. 

The WFPS is once again reminding Winnipeggers to use caution when doing any burning, as the number of grass and wildland fires is expected to increase over the coming weeks as the ground dries out.
