Brush-Fire Threatens Vehicles And Structures

A brush-fire ignited on private property Tuesday afternoon off of Rio Blanco County Road 7, near Strawberry Creek. The fire, which is believed to have been human caused, threatened structures and vehicles in the area, but firefighters were able to get the fire under control before additional damage occurred. Multiple outbuilding  and some farming equipment was destroyed during the blaze, but crews were able to prevent the fire from spreading to the home on the property. It took crews two and a half hours to get the blaze fully under control.  A video from the fire is available below. Video and photo courtesy of the Rio Blanco County Sheriff’s Facebook page.
