September 15, 2017 - Brush Fire
On Friday September 15th at 07:36 MVFD and BCSO responded to reports of a small grass fire 7 miles east of Altuda. Upon arriving BCSO Deputy Drawe and Marathon Firefighters found flames were put out by rain, but fuel on the ground was still smoldering. Deputy Drawe began over turning any smoldering materials while MVFD personnel foamed the area. Lightning is suspected of being the cause. Scene was cleared at 08:26. Thank you to Deputy Drawe for the assist.
