FINLEY -- Fires have become more frequent in August, leading Mike Harris, Benton Fire District 1 deputy chief, to remind people to be careful whenever they are involved in outside activities.
Fire danger is high, he said, as evidenced by an 80-acre blaze Sunday in Finley. The fire, which started around 12:20 p.m. on Bofer Canyon Road just off of Coffin Road, was out by 4 p.m., Harris said.
No one was injured, and no damage was caused, he said.
The cause still is under investigation.
It was the second fire in Finley this weekend.
