Brush fires blazed off Eldon Schafer Drive across from LCC and Oak Hill School in the late afternoon Friday, July 31.
“When I first come [sic] up, there were flames coming up over the trees. It was hitting pretty hard,” Mike Richardson, facility planner, said who was handing out water to nearby responders.
By approximately 4:30 p.m., the fire by Oak Hill School was mostly contained, while fire crews continued to fight another fire to the south of campus. A helicopter was seen dropping water on the second fire.
The cause of the fires is currently unknown.
