News Release
Mechanical Failure Causes Spot Fires Along HWY 22 - 07/22/21

Sheridan, SW Polk, and West Valley Fire Districts were dispatched to a possible wildland fire in the area of Butler Hill Road and HWY 22 around 9:00 pm on July 21st. Initial reports indicated it was a small spot fire. This fire was extinguished quickly by bystanders, however additional fires were reported on HWY 22 at Kings Valley HWY and the Rickreall interchange. The Polk County Sheriff’s office determined the fires were started by a vehicle with mechanical failure. They were able to stop the vehicle, preventing additional fires from igniting. In total there were three fires that were all quickly extinguished by fire personnel. 

Sheridan, SW Polk, and West Valley Fire Districts would like to thank the Polk County Sheriff’s office and Dallas Fire Department for their assistance on scene. We would like to remind the public that during this time of high fire danger, even the smallest spark can cause major loss.
