Upon arrival, crews encountered a 1.5 acre grass fire with a moderate rate of spread threatening one home. Two additional Patrols and Helicopter 408 were requested. Crews worked quickly to contain the fire and were able to stop it before it damaged the home. The fire was contained in thirty minutes and held at 3 acres.
