Range 85 Fire

By | April 19, 2015

At 12:00 Brush 36 & 38 were dispatched to Range 85 for several fires downrange posing a threat to the electronic targets.  Upon arrival Brush 38 found several fires throughout the range and fires burning on the wood line near Range 85 By-Pass road.  Brush 56 and 57 were added to the assignment.  The road was fired in to keep the fire in the Range 85 compound.  Throughout the day several fires popped up and eventually set the Range 65 wood line on fire.   Crews fired in the perimeter utilizing an over grown jeep trail and were able to hold the fire to the original block.  Station 3 crews ate dinner at Range 65 and ended up returning to quarters around Midnight.
