Around 4 p.m. Friday, Powell Volunteer firefighters responded to 814 Lane 6-3/4 for a controlled burn that got out of control. Blowing embers from about 100 yards away reached two trailers sitting side by side.
The mobile homes were quickly engulfed, but the owner was not worried. He was concerned about a nearby haystack and barn, said Capt. Sam Rodriguez. The hay and barn were kept saturated.
Firemen Mike Meeker and Doug Leichner keep a close eye on one of the trailers that burned to the ground.
