Summit Fire and Medical Department had two fires to put out Wednesday.

According to the department, a possible structure fire was reported in the area of East Burris Lane and Prairie Dog Lane in the Doney Park area at approximately 9:40 p.m. Three summit fire engines, one battalion chief, one water tender, one Flagstaff Fire Department engine, Guardian Medical Transport and the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office all responded.

The first units to arrive found wind-driven flames up to 3 or 4 feet burning approximately 1 acre of grass. The fire was threatening nearby structures and evacuations were underway.

Crews established a perimeter around the fire to stop it from spreading, which protected the threatened structures. Firefighters spent several more hours mopping up the blaze. There were no injuries and no reports of building damage.

While crews were batting the grass fire, Summit Fire was also dispatched to a vehicle fire at milepost 224 on Interstate 40, which is near Twin Arrows Navajo Casino Resort. The SUV was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived. Crews were able to extinguish the flames and reopen eastbound traffic on I-40. No injuries were reported.
