Rocky Ford Fire Dept VS Out of Control Ag Burn 6/20/22

Today at approximately 2:30 pm we were paged out to an agricultural burn that got out of control threatening a hay barn. 

Upon arrival we found that the fire had not made it into the hay barn. 

The fire did burned approximately 4 acres before containment was achieved. 

Mutual aid was requested from Manzanola, Fowler, and La Junta. 

The fire did cause approximately $20,000 in damages to nearby hay and gated irrigation pipe. 

Cause of fire was accidental.  All units cleared at approximately 7:30 pm. 

A huge shout out to the mutual aid agencies that assisted us.  You are all greatly appreciated.
