Firefighters stifle 1/4-acre wildfire in Chino Valley

Chino Valley firefighters put out a quarter-acre wildland fire Thursday afternoon in the Highland Ranch subdivision.

At 4:38 p.m., firefighters answered a call about a wildland fire at Essex and Road 1 North down in the wash, Chino Valley Fire District Battalion Chief Mat Mayhall said.

"Crews got to the scene and found a 20-by-20 area with five-foot flames," Mayhall said.

Two engines and a patrol helped put out the fire and within 15 minutes firefighters were mopping up, Mayhall said.

Mayhall said they don't know what started the fire yet, and no buildings were in

danger.
