SIOUX CITY FIRE CREWS HAVE BEEN BATTLING A STUBBORN GRASS FIRE ON THE WESTSIDE.

THE FIRE WAS REPORTED AROUND 2:45PM IN THE HILLS LOCATED NEAR WEST 28TH STREET AND TALBOT ROAD.

THE FIRE HAS THREATENED THE HOLY SPIRIT RETIREMENT HOME, GETTING WITHIN 50 YARDS OF THE FACILITY, BUT CREWS KEPT THE FIRE FROM REACHING THE BUILDING.

THE FIRE ALSO THREATENED HOMES ALONG TALBOT ROAD NEAR WEST 30TH.

STRONG WINDS HAVE HINDERED FIREFIGHTERS AND HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO REIGNITING THE FIRE IN DIFFERENT SPOTS IN THE HILLS.
