On Wednesday Jan 24th at 15:24 Marathon Fire was alerted to a grass fire 10 miles north of the county line. Marathon responded with brush 43 brush 41 and attack 1 with 7 firefighters. Upon arrival responding units found that they were paged to a fire already being worked by Fort Stockton Fire, MVFD assisted FSFD with mop up of the area and departed scene at 18:30. The fire burned approximately 5 acres. Great job to Fort Stockton Fire getting this under control before it spread and as always it was a pleasure working with y’all.
