A huge blaze raged up the west side of Capitol Hill towards Ensign Peak, Tuesday, July 24. Luckily, it could have been a lot worse.
Whether you live high on the hillside, or not, fire is a possibility.
How can you prepare?
- Evaluate your property.
- Minimize fuel such as dry grass and brush. Sparks and embers can land on roofs so check your gutters. Keep them free of fuel, too.
- Create defensible space by clearing brush away from your home.
- Use fire-resistant landscaping and harden your home with fire-safe construction measures.
“SLCFD has enough equipment to do some pretty cool things, such as extending fire hoses much farther than you’d think possible.” — local Firefighter
