Hidden Hill Lane Fire

Crews from the Douglas Forest Protective Association, Tenmile Rural Fire Department and Winston – Dillard Fire Department responded to a natural cover fire Saturday evening about five miles west of Winston, near Hidden Hill Lane. Firefighters arrived on scene shortly after 5:30 pm and located a downed powerline with several fires burning on both sides of the road. Fire crews were able to stop the forward spread of the fire at approximately a third of an acre of grass, brush and downed vegetation from the winter snow storm but were unable to mop up the fire until crews from Douglas Electric could deenergized the downed powerline. Once the line was confirmed to be deenergized, firefighters mopped up hot spots and secured control lines.

A preliminary fire investigation indicated that the Hidden Hill Lane Fire may be related to a tree branch that went through the powerlines.
