Discarded smoking materials were likely the cause of a brush fire Saturday evening near Frontier Village, according to Jamestown Fire Chief Jim Reuther.

“It was pretty dry vegetation,” Reuther said.

The Jamestown Fire Department responded to a brush fire shortly after 7:45 p.m. at 316 16th St. SE, which is a gravel road north of Frontier Village across the road from the amphitheater entrance on 3rd Avenue Southeast. JFD responded with five vehicles and 18 firefighters, Reuther said.

The brush fire was contained to a 30-by-30-foot area on city of Jamestown land near the road and was under control at 8 p.m., Reuther said. Firefighters cleared the scene at 8:07 p.m.
