LEWISTON - At 1:30 pm on Friday afternoon, the Lewiston Fire Department was dispatched to a brush fire in the canyon between Vineyard Avenue and Hillcrest Drive. First arriving crews found a slow moving brush fire approximately 60 feet by 80 feet between the two roadways. No structures were threatened.
The fire was quickly extinguished and crews mopped up the area for any hotspots. The crews were on scene for approximately half an hour. No civilian or firefighter injuries were reported.
The cause of the fire was undetermined. This Lewiston Fire Department would like to remind citizens that this early brush fire should serve as a reminder that the dead grasses and brush underneath the new spring growth is still very dry and easily ignited.
