Crews put out grass fire in town

Firefighters from a Payette Fire Department brush truck knock down a small grass fire on the 1200 block of North Sixth Street in Payette on Monday afternoon. The department was dispatched around 2:50 p.m., and within 15-20 minutes the blaze was nearly fully extinguished. Just to be sure, though, a second water-bearing unit arrived on scene around 3:10 p.m. In Southwest Idaho at this time, fire danger is rated at level blue, for “moderate,” according to the Boise Interagency Dispatch Center website.
