A group of residents worked together to put out a small wildland fire Thursday afternoon. Central Fire and Medical crews were called to an area of East Blazing Star Circle in Prescott Valley at around 2 p.m. on a report of a small fire. When crews arrived they found a half-acre fire that had just been knocked down by area residents. One neighbor used a tractor to dig a line around the fire in order to stop the spread. A water truck was being used on a construction site a short distance away, so another neighbor ran to alert the driver, who drove to the scene and began spraying water on the fire. Crews remained on scene to ensure the fire was completely extinguished. Officials say the fire was started by a lawnmower blade making contact with a rock.
