Capt. Scott Martin of Evergreen Fire/Rescue said that when he saw 40-foot flames while heading down Buffalo Park Road on June 3, he immediately called for mutual aid.
“Capt. Martin did the right thing,” said Evergreen Fire Chief Mike Weege while talking about the Bluebell Fire, which scorched more than 10 acres last week.
Strong winds fueled the wildfire, which started when a 48-foot tree made contact with two high-voltage power lines on wooded property near Bluebell Lane.
