Grassley recovers from fire

Waterloo (KWWL) - When Senator Charles Grassley was home in New Hartford for Easter, he cleaned a fence-line and burned debris when grass caught fire.

The 75-year-old says he stomped out the flames but when his soles melted, he suffered burns on one leg.

"It's gonna take a long time to hear. It's red obviously, but it's faily smooth. That's pretty good for a wound," said Senator Grassley.

Grassley says he won't need skin grafs, and he's recovering nicely.
