Thank you for the information.

I am surprised that there was no mention of this fire when listing the other fires that have occurred recently. I am surprised because this fire, if it had grown enough, could have been endangering homes. I don't know whether it was because it was so small because it was caught in the early stages or whether it was some other reason, but it would be interesting to know if there had been some potential danger here that never materialised due to prompt action.
