WEST POINT, Utah, June 29, 2018 (Gephardt Daily) — Fire crews went all-out Friday afternoon to extinguish a grassfire that ultimately consumed about seven acres. Multiple agencies worked together to get the blaze under control.

North Davis Fire crews were dispatched to the fire in West Point at about 5:16 p.m.

They arrived quickly and called for assistance from neighboring Clinton, Syracuse, Layton, South Weber, and Weber Fire District crews.

Twenty-five firefighters worked for about an hour to extinguish the fire, which was made especially difficult by tall, dry grasses, wind, and location that was hard to reach.

No one was injured in the fire.

In a news release, North Davis Fire officials said they would like to thank “the Davis County Sheriff’s Office for providing traffic control and the South Weber Fire Rehab crews for aiding our exhausted firefighters in this heat.”

They also urged everyone to use extreme caution with any fire source, and if possible, don’t start any type of fire this time of year.
