Shupe said that about 6,000 gallons of water were used to put out the blaze. He added that the main difficulty firefighters faced was that the small fire was in an area with “pretty gnarly terrain.”

Two 6 x 6 army-style firefighting trucks were involved in the firefighting efforts.

The cause of the fire is undetermined and under investigation.
