The summer like temperature and gusty winds might be a pleasant surprise for most area residents…but it has become a nightmare for area fire department.  A rash of grass fires erupted Tuesday all across Southeastern Ohio.  There were reports of fires in fields in New Concord on Sonora Road, in Perry County and off of Narrows Road near Frazeysburg in Muskingum County.  At least Dresden, Frazeysburg and Falls Township volunteer fire departments reported to the brush fire.  The high winds are making an already difficult situation worse as crews work to put out the flames.
