Capturing our county

Fire crews extinguish a grass fire Tuesday off the Golden Center Freeway near Idaho-Maryland Road. A piece of metal from a vehicle reportedly started the blaze, which was reported at 3:43 p.m. and contained by 4 p.m. No one was injured. Traffic that was already stalled by road construction moved even slower for the 20 minutes that fire crews wrestled the blaze.
