HURRICANE – A fire broke out this afternoon in the hill region between the Walmart Distribution Center and the Winkel Distributing Co.

That fire has been named by BLM Color Country Interagency Fire Response Unit as the Old 91 Fire.  It is now contained, according to BLM’s Public Information Officer, Nick Howell.

Howell says it appears that the cause of the Old 91 Fire is power line related.
