As part of what Fire Lieutenant Andres Campos called a busy time, the Gallup Fire Department was called to the site of Black Diamond Mobile Home Park, 319 E. Wilson Ave. on July 22.

Campos said the call came into the fire station about 4:38 pm that day, and he estimates the fire had started within 10 minutes of the call being placed.

“We did see black smoke rising when we arrived at the scene,” Campos said. “But it ended up being some brush [that caught fire], so we put it out using hand tools.”

There were no injuries and no structure damage was reported.
