Photo: Fire snuffed out on Lower River Road

Fire crews from Basalt tended to a brush fire that spanned about half an acre off Lower River Road on Sunday afternoon. Nearby residents were doing a controlled burn that was spread by gusts of wind. The fire threatened no structures, but traffic on Two Rivers Road was detoured. Plumes of smoke could be seen from the Highway 82 leg of the Old Snowmass canyon.
