At 13:18 on August 19th, 2019 South Metro Fire Rescue responded to a vegetation fire at Highland Heritage Regional Park, located southwest of University Blvd. and S. Quebec St.  When crews arrived, they encountered a 50×50 foot area of grass and weeds on fire spreading into thicker vegetation.  With dry conditions and high heat 2 additional brush trucks were requested to assist.  Brush 17 anchored off the road and a cement path and began a mobile attack on the right flank.  Engine 33 spotted on a hydrant, pulled their bumper line and went direct on the left flank.  Safety 18 assumed command assisted by District 1 and Safety 35 was assigned as the incident safety officer.  The fire was quickly contained with no structures threatened but it took an hour to fully extinguish all of the smoldering hot spots.  The fire consumed 0.7 acres and Investigators determined the cause was accidental. Additional information provided by South Metro Fire Rescue.

Units on Scene: District 1, Safety 18, Safety 35, Engine 33, Brush 17, Brush 18, Brush 36, PIO10, PIO11, Bureau 21 & Bureau 23
