A fire East of Beaver

There is a fire that has been reported East of Beaver. The U.S. Forect Service (USFS) is on scene now.

Remember, this is the start of fire season. Please be extra careful with open flames, sparks, and other sources of ignition. The high amount of precipitation we have had this year has weeds and grasses growing taller and thicker than usual, but as they start to dry out they become great fire fuel.
