We would like to thank the passer-by that stopped and called 911 before the incident could spread. We would also like to remind the community that the National Weather Service puts out Red Flag Warnings to alert citizens when there is a high potential for easily ignitable fuels. When these are in effect we ask that you verify cigarettes and other ignition sources are fully extinguished before disposing of them.
