Airport Road Brush Fire
Posted On: Sep 01, 2018

At 4 p.m. on Friday, August 31, 2018, a second round of thunderstorms with frequent lightning rolled off the foothills into Douglas County. Motorists on U.S. Highway 85 spotted a small brush fire 2 miles west of the highway and south of Airport Road. First arriving Engine 40 spotted the fire, worked on recon to determine best access and upgraded the incident to a Large Brush Fire. That upgraded response tripled the amount of firefighters and equipment. Brush Engine 39 use...d a power line road to access the burn area and sized up just over an acre burning at a moderate rate of spread downslope. A burst of heavy rain quickly knocked down all visible flames allowing the fire to be sufficiently contained by crews on scene and additional units were cancelled. No structures were threatened, no injuries occurred and lightning is suspected as the cause.
