Firefighters from Aspen and Basalt were called to a structure fire at 1 p.m. Friday, but the small blaze on the side of a residence was snuffed before they arrived.

A homeowner among a small cluster of mobile homes at 55 Phillips Riverview had leaned a piece of glass against wood siding of a modular home, according to Basalt Assistant Fire Chief Pete Bradshaw. The glass apparently concentrated the heat and started a fire “almost the size of a notebook,” Bradshaw said. It caused a small amount of damage to siding and insulation before a person on the scene put it out with a garden hose and disaster was averted. No firefighter assistance was required, according to Bradshaw.
