A grass fire Thursday was quickly snuffed out by Craig Fire/Rescue.

About 2:20 p.m. Craig fire crews, the Moffat County Sheriff’s Office, and Memorial Regional Health EMS responded to a grass fire on the 1000 block of Ponderosa Way in the Shadow Mountain subdivision.

Fire crews could be seen about 2:25 p.m. driving onto the dirt road into eastern field near Ponderosa Way where a slight northeastern wind was pushing the small fire up the hill.

The grass fire was under control by about 2:30 p.m.
