Hawley, MN (WDAY TV) - The Clay County, Minnesota Sheriff's Office continues to investigate a string of grass fires that ignited Saturday evening along Highway 10 between Hawley and Glyndon.

Those fires appeared to start along a 20-mile stretch of railroad tracks.

One well traveled bridge went up in flames, closing County Road 220.

Other structures were threatened, but did not sustain damage.

Sheriff Bill Bergquist says he believes a passing train likely sparked those fires.
