Chief Steve Murphy told the Anchor, “The firefighters aggressively fought this fire and did a great job of preventing further fire spread.  The wind also helped us by shifting in the right direction.”

Chief Murphy also said “due to the lack of rain and snowfall, we are concerned about how dry the ground is and are worried about additional outside fires.   We want to ask anyone burning brush to be extremely careful and pay close attention to their fires."  He also also reminded us to "please burn small quantities rather than a larger fire and have a water source readily available.”
