Scottsbluff fire department called out to firework-caused blaze

Posted: Updated:

The Scottsbluff Fire Department responded to reports of a fire near the Rebecca Winters apartment complex on 15th Avenue shortly after 4 p.m.

Scottsbluff Fire Captain Ryan Lohr says the fire was clearly caused by a firecracker or firework.

Scottsbluff resident Dawson Holten says he witnessed the fire start and ran to tell his step mother to call 911 after he saw kids light a firecracker. He says they ran away when they saw that the fire was getting out of hand.

This is at least the third fireworks-related accident fire crews have responded to in less than two weeks.
