Firefighters quickly extinguished a small brush fire north of Craig on Moffat County Road 105 around 9:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Craig Fire/Rescue Chief KC Hume said the fire was less than an acre and did not threaten any of the residences along the road.

A utility pole owned by Yampa Valley Electric Association was singed in the blaze and the company has been contacted to preform an inspection.

“Anytime we have any of that infrastructure that is involved or in the area, they come out and inspect it,” Hume said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Responding agencies include Craig Fire/Rescue, Moffat County Sheriff’s Office and The Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services.
