The Coaldale Fire Department and Brush Fire Team responded to a brush fire that started just after 4 p.m. Saturday in Coaldale. It was located in a dense wooded area about one quarter of a mile behind the Coaldale Rod and Gun Club. Officials stated the brush fire covered 200 square feet. Due to the fire's dense wooded location, only off-road vehicles and special fire apparatus could reach the fire. A witness said she saw kids in the affected woods prior to the brush fire. The Coaldale Fire Police limited traffic to the entrance area for duration.
