ITS GONNA BE A HOT ONE

KOKOPELLI FIRE

 

April 27, 2018

Aztec April 22, 2018-Summer is not even here yet, and we are already feeling the heat, literally. On Sunday, around 3:15 PM, it was reported that a resident was burning weeds in their yard. Even though it was not windy, the fire still spread quickly to neighbor's yards and the arroyo behind the neighbors houses. In approximately 15 minutes the fire went from a small pile to a raging inferno.

Thankfully, quick acting neighbors grabbed their water hoses and shovels and kept the fire from spreading to other properties.

Several fire departments came

and fought the blaze. A few minutes later, fire fighters knocked down the major flames and hosed down the hot spots.They worked for about three and half hours.

The residents of Kokopelli are very thankful that none of the hous- es were burned.

Just a reminder to all citizens that it's been a dry year, and every- one needs to be cautious with their spring chores.
