Units responded this afternoon for the report of a fire in a backyard. At 12:40 the station was alerted to respond to the 13300 block of Ridgewood Drive in the 3-24 box. Upon arrival Brush 38 located a large wood pile on fire to the rear of a home and requested an additional engine and tanker respond. Engine 31 laid out from the road to the end of the driveway and was supplied by Tankers 3 and 34. The bulk of the fire was quickly extinguished and Howard County Bureau of Highways was requested; they responded and cut down six trees that were damaged in the fire. Units cleared at 17:42. The cause of the fire is believed to be ashes from a woodstove that the homeowner advised he improperly disposed of in the backyard.

Units: Engine 31, Brush 38, Tanker 3, Tanker 34
