At 12:31 on July 20th, 2019 South Metro Fire Rescue responded to a report of smoke in the area of Hwy. 85 and Brandon Dr. in unincorporated Douglas County.  As crews drove the area checking, a second 911 caller reported flames in the grass west of Pioneer Landscaping along the railroad tracks. The incident was upgraded to a large brush fire and additional crews were dispatched.  Heavy rail trains were stopped, allowing Firefighters to safely access 3 areas of burning grass and weeds along the tracks.  Crews accessed the fires from Brandon Dr. and from the Chatfield State Park Dam.  No structures were threatened, and approximately 2-acres were burned. Crews spent about an hour putting out the flames and mopping up hot spots. No injuries were reported. Additional story and information provided by South Metro Fire Rescue.
