VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - The Wabash Valley may be in for showers Sunday, but the Otter Creek Fire Department has a reminder for you!

It's asking that you be careful when burning leaves or brush. Crews responded to a small brush fire Saturday that ended with a shed being a total loss.

The Department shared pictures on their Facebook page of the fire.

Officials want to remind you that dry grass and brush can catch fire very easily and can get out of control in a hurry.
