(Fires on Tuesday)…The first was a brush fire.
It was reported at around 1:19 Tuesday afternoon about a half mile west of Ferrell Road, north of Highway 98. Fire crews performed suppression operations, then monitored the fire as it smoldered. Two other fires were reported Tuesday night. They were both haystack fires. They were reported at around 7:38 pm at west Young and Brandt Roads. Calipatria, Brawley and Imperial County Fire Departments responded to the fires. The haystacks were surrounded to keep the fires from spreading, while the haystacks burned themselves out. No cause was given for any of the three fires.
