Crews responded Tuesday afternoon to two reported fires along Hwy 89, south of the JH Airport Rd. Junction. Visitors reported seeing a trailer with mechanical issues driving south ignite two fires along the road shoulder. Initial actions taken by visitors with a fire extinguisher and water kept the fires from spreading until interagency fire resources could reach the scene.
The two fires, approx 100 yards apart, totaled less than a tenth of an acre.
