A small wildfire in Boulder County was put out by motorists Sunday night, according to the county’s sheriff’s office.
At about 9 p.m., the sheriff’s office received reports of a wildfire in the 11400 block of North Foothills Highway. When deputies and fire officials showed up, they learned that motorists who were passing by had stopped to extinguish the fire.
Officials say the fire was started by a firework.
Colorado is in the middle of a 30-day open fire ban — including fireworks — which Gov. Jared Polis announced on Aug. 18.
The sheriff’s office is encouraging those who see fire ban violations to report them to 911.
