Vegetation Fire In Arnold Ignited By Hot B.B.Q. Briquettes

Vegetation Fire In Arnold Ignited By Hot B.B.Q. Briquettes 

While firefighters were busy battling the Parrots Fire yesterday, another vegetation fire along the 2000 Block of Jerrilynn Lane in Arnold was reported. When crews arrived they discovered the homeowner had been barbequing and had cleaned out the BBQ and had dumped the briquettes onto the ground which ignited the grass. The fire burned into a small stand of trees before fire units could completely extinguish it.  Luckily the fire only burned a 20’ by 20’ patch and the homeowner was citied.  Remember; keep the briquettes IN the BBQ until they are cold to the touch.
