FARMINGTON — Hot and dry weather contributed to the spread of a grass fire in Farmington overnight.

The fire was first reported shortly before midnight and spread to approximately five acres.

Investigators believe the fire was caused by a power transformer that exploded.

Wayne Hansen, Farmington City Police Chief, said firefighting crews from multiple agencies responded to the scene and attacked the fire from three sides.

The fire was mostly contained within two hours. No structures were threatened.
