Last evening (October 12th) around 8:30 our crews were dispatched to a wildfire on Hodgen Road east of Highway 83. Crews arrived to find a wildfire burning approximately 1/2 acre and some isolated torching of trees. We were able to quickly contain and extinguish the fire. We are working with the El Paso County Sheriff's Office with the ongoing investigation into the cause.

Please be cautious and prepared!

This fire had been burning for less than 5 minutes when you see the picture taken by a bystander who had called 911. Notice the embers flying through the air and dropping onto the grass that contributed to the fire spread.
