Residents in the Parker area saw thick smoke billowing from the area south of town the morning and afternoon of Jan. 31. It came from a brush fire off Second Avenue on the Colorado River Indian Reservation. The fire was located across the canal on the west side of Second Avenue in the area between the Joint Venture wastewater treatment plant and Manataba Park. No structures were threatened.

Witnesses said it looked like a controlled burn that got out of hand.

The Colorado River Indian Tribes’ Fire Department responded to the fire, as did the Parker and Buckskin Fire Departments.
