Canyon County Dispatch received several reports of a grass fire west of Greenleaf at about 1:45 p.m. Sunday. The fire was reportedly burning near Peckham and Tucker Roads.
The fire turned out to be a controlled burn that got out of hand, but a dispatcher said firefighters were able to quickly put it out.
A little after 2 p.m., a grass fire was reported near Stafford and Willis Roads, just west of Middleton. At 2:30 p.m., a dispatcher said that fire was out and not a problem.
After numerous wildfires in the region over the past week, dispatchers in Ada, Boise, Elmore and Canyon counties said there hadn't been reports of any wildfires overnight Saturday and Sunday.
There was a small grass fire on the east side of Nampa Sunday, according to Nampa Deputy Fire Chief Doug Strosnider.
"The day is early and firework sales started today so it should be an interesting couple of weeks," said Strosnider, who is particularly concerned about children getting injured by the fireworks.
"I think many people think sparklers are safe," Strosnider said. "They burn at over 1000 degrees, so they truly are a significant burn hazard because most people hold them or run and twirl them around."
The fire department issued a burn ban on all outside open burning last week. Fire officials don't know when it will be lifted.
