The Paonia Volunteer Fire Department responded to two fires late last week. On Thursday, April 13, they responded to a structure fire on Cresthaven Road. The fire destroyed a house originally built in 1909 and belonging to Kevin Kropp. No other structures were damaged, and no injuries were reported, according to Paonia fire chief Mike Byers.

On Friday the department responded to a call for an out-of-control burn just outside of Paonia between High Wire Hops and the North Fork of the Gunnison River in the area of Clock Road. The winds were kicking up around that time and fire only damaged vegetation, mostly grass, willows and cattails, said Byers. There were no injuries.

There was no red flag warning in effect at the time of Friday's fire, said Byers. He reminds those planning to burn to report it to the county burn line at 399-2955 the morning of the burn. That will also let them know if a red flag warning is in effect. More information is available at deltacounty.com/365/Open-Burning
