Grass fire burns near Ada-Canyon county line

A late afternoon grass fire in the 7000 block of Top Rim Way burned about five acres Tuesday, but crews from Star and other Canyon and Ada County departments had it under control in about an hour, Middleton Fire Department Capt. Mark Rabdau said.

The fire damaged a small travel trailer, but "the winds were in our favor and kept it from going up the hill to the house," Rabdau said.

The fire, in the area near Blessinger and Foothills roads on the Canyon County side of the Ada-Canyon line, was reported at 4:39 p.m. Crews from Star, Middleton, Eagle and Meridian managed to get the upper hand by 5:30 p.m., Rabdau said, and mop-up continued Tuesday evening.
