featured Fire chews up 50 acres May 20, 2020 May 20, 2020 0 Facebook Twitter WhatsApp SMS Email Print Save A sign reminds the public of extreme fire danger, as a BLM helitack crew and chopper in the background dip water from Palm Lake, located inside the Hassayampa River Preserve, to help stop a brush fire Thursday afternoon. A 50-acre brush fire, which initially threatened three homes near Wickenburg, was stopped Thursday afternoon by fire fighters from multiple agencies. Crews and engines from Wickenburg Fire Department, Bureau of Land Management and Circle City/Morristown Fire Department responded on the ground, while two SEATs (single engine air tankers) and a helitack crew fought the blaze from the air. The fire was contained by about 4 p.m., according to WFD Chief Ed Temerowski. Due to rough terrain, a hot shot crew was summoned to mop up the fire. Temerowski said the fire was started by a resident using a grinder near vegetation. He reminds the public that burn restrictions are now in place, even on private property.(Jeanie Hankins/Sun photo) Facebook Twitter WhatsApp SMS Email Print Save × Post a comment as Emoticons [smile] [beam] [wink] [sad] [cool] [innocent] [rolleyes] [whistling] [lol] [huh] [tongue] [love] [sleeping] [yawn] [unsure] [angry] [blink] [crying] [ohmy] [scared] [sleep] [sneaky] [tongue_smile] [thumbdown] [thumbup] [censored] [happybirthday] [ban] [spam] [offtopic] [batman] [ninja] [pirate] [alien] Comment Text Cancel Post comment × Your comment has been submitted. × Report Cancel Report Abuse ×Reported ×There was a problem reporting this. × Watch this discussion.
