PALISADE, Colo. –
The Palisade Fire Department was called out to a fire shortly after 4pm. Chief Richard Rupp of PFD says an orchard shed caught fire. The department saved a near-by cooler that housed peaches, and a powerline pole. Weeds and grass were on fire when the department arrived. Chief Rupp said workers at the orchard were doing a prescribed burn, a little wind and a small spark led to the situation. He reminds KREX to make sure if you are burning you are always vigilant.
