On Friday, March 16 at about 1:00 p.m. Deputy Joey Musso responded to a call near Interstate 25, Colorado City.

Upon arrival Officer Musso observed a fire about 300 yards east of a greenhouse. Closer inspection revealed the fire was coming from a pile of potting soil used at the greenhouse.

The Facility Manager indicated for an extended period the potting soil had been dumped in that location with no incident.

Office Musso visited with Rye Fire Protection District Chief Steve Bennett who said the temperature inside the build up could reach over 100 degrees and over the combustible point of the fertilizer used at the greenhouse. Bennett said combustion caused the incident and high winds exacerbated it by spreading the fire.
