Crews from many agencies were quick to jump on the Rest Fire that broke out off of Interstate-40 about five miles east of Parks Saturday. Ponderosa Fire officials say the fire grew to just under an acre before crews were able to stop forward progress. No equipment or structures were threatened. Crews from Flagstaff, Sherwood, the U.S. Forest Service and Ponderosa fire departments were on scene to tend to the fire. If you are traveling and pulling a trailer, make sure your chains are up off the highway and if you smoke, don’t toss cigarette butts out of the window.
