Firefighters battle brush fire north of Cortez

A Cortez firefighter fights remaining hot spots at an out of control brush fire on County Road 29. “It is so dry right now. I know that we are not doing the red flag warning,” Bittle said, “but the low humidity is really dangerous, and if there is any wind it will pick up those embers.”
Two Cortez firefighters fight hot spots left from the brush fire.
A plume of smoke was visible from a brush fire on County Road 29.
