NEW TOWN, N.D. (AP) - A weekend grass fire near New Town prompted the evacuation of some homes.

Residents of Four Bears Village were moved to the tribal casino on Saturday while firefighters battled the flames. They were allowed back home after about two hours.

State Highway 23 also was closed for a time. No buildings were impacted.

Authorities say the fire might have started at a nearby oil well.
