On July 3rd, 2018 South Metro Fire Rescue responded to multiple reports of a brush fire along southbound I-25 near Surrey Ridge.  When crews arrived they found 3 separate fires burning along a ½ mile stretch, 2 were slowly creeping and the largest of the three was spreading south at a moderate pace.  The first two fires were quickly extinguished and additional units were requested.  Safety 32 assumed command as Brush Engine 39 and Tower 34 advanced a progressive hose lay along the ridgeline to prevent extension toward oak brush and homes. Brush Engine 36 placed their Type III Engine between the fire and the neighborhood and also assisted with direct attack.  Engine 44 anchored on the shoulder of I-25 and advanced a 1.75” line, which quickly stopped forward progress.  No structures were threatened, no injuries occurred and investigators were unable to determine a cause. 

Units on Scene: Brush Engine 36 & Brush Engine 39

Special Call: District Chief 3, Safety 32, Tower 34, Engine 44 & Brush 33

Support Staff: OEM 3, Bureau 3, Bureau 33 & PIO 30
