Brush fire quickly extinguished

At 8:39 a.m. on July 15, crews from Chelan Fire & Rescue were dispatched to a reported 20’x20’ brush fire on Hidden Lane on the Columbia River near Chelan.  Units arrived to find a 1/4 acre slow moving fire in brush and grass.  Crews on scene were able to quickly contained and extinguish this fire within three minutes of arrival.  Their ability to staff and respond rapidly to these types of incidents enables them to mitigate the fire problem before it can become a bigger issue.  Cause of this fire was believed to have been a spark from concrete chipping that was being done by the property owner.  Chelan Fire & Rescue would like to remind the community that our local fuels are extremely dry and they ask that property owners take all precautions to prevent the accidental start of wildfires
