[ARCHIVED] GJFD Responds to Brush Fire

At 5:36 PM Grand Junction Fire Department responded to reports of a dumpster and mattresses on fire in the area of Mobile City, 2322 Hwy 6 & 50. Callers reported the fire spreading rapidly to the west across a dry field threatening nearby homes. GJFD units Brush 4 and Brush 6 entered the field and worked rapidly to contain the fire and defend structures. GJFD requested a water tender from the Lower Valley Fire Protection District to provide a water source in areas with limited access to hydrants. The fire was extinguished by 6:04 PM and crews continued to work in the area, cooling hotspots to ensure the fire did not rekindle. The fire destroyed one outdoor shed and damaged the exterior of another. No homes were damaged. There are no known injuries. The origin and cause of the fire are under investigation.    

GJFD responded with Brush 4, Brush 6, Engine 2, Engine 3, Engine 5, Water Tender 5, Ambulance 1, and a Battalion Chief. Lower Valley Fire Protection District and Grand Junction Police Department responded to assist.
