• On Friday, May 18 firefighters were kept busy with back-to-back wildland fires. Around 6 p.m. crews responded to the Brenmark area to a report of a grass fire. Upon arrival, firefighters found 4-5 foot flames in the backyard of a residence. A chicken coop and shed were threatened, but KESA and Forestry personnel were able to quickly get the fire under control. Two victims were transported to the hospital with minor burns.
• Firefighters were called out again to respond to a reported wildland fire in the East Skyline Drive area. Upon arrival, crews found a large grass fire with 3-4 foot flames fanned by strong, gusty winds. KESA and Forestry Firefighters were able to stop the fire, and got control after two wind-driven flare ups. Their actions spared two small cabins threatened by the fast-moving fire. Approximately one acre burned. KESA firefighters left the scene around 9:30 p.m., while Forestry firefighters remained to monitor the area. Both fires are under investigation.
