Recent Brushfire

Link to: Yavapai County Emergency Alert Website

To the residents of Cherry, AZ –

CVFA responded to a small brush fire recently. Thanks to the quick action of volunteers Joe Boyle, John Wilson and Carl Collmar it was held to under two acres. The cause was sparks from a burn barrel on a windy day. From this experience we learned that the large wild land truck has an air leak that keeps its pump from fully priming. We can and will fix that. We should have also learned that you don’t use a burn barrel on a windy day. We can’t fix that – it’s a personal choice. I implore those of you who feel the need to burn papers or debris to wait for a calm day – preferably just after a good rain. Thanks.
