At 1419 hours today, A-Shift responded to a large woods fire in the 500 block of Kenion Road. Upon arrival of the first Chief Officer, he reported a large fire in the woods. Using leaf blowers and hand rakes, crews installed fire breaks around the fire to contain the spread and protect multiple structures and some farm machinery. Once the fire was contained, crews went back over the area with portable tanks and extingushed ground fires and a few smoldering hot spots. Rough estimates of the fire's size was between 6 and 7 acres. The fire was contained and under control whin two hours. No buildings or machinery were lost.
