It was a busy Friday night for Chino Valley first responders, as both the Chino Valley Fire District and Chino Valley Police Dept. were dispatched to a wild fire and injury accident within an hour of each other.

The wildfire burned about an acre and a half of grass near the corner of Peppertree Place and Road 2 N at approximately 7:30 p.m.

CVFD Battalion Chief Mat Mayhall said that the fire spread to just over an acre and crews on the scene had it extinguished in less than 15 minutes.

Mayhall said witnesses reported seeing several children running from the area when the flames were first reported.

Engines from station 61 and 62 were dispatched. Mayhall said a third engine from station 63 in Paulden also responded when the flames came within 50 feet of neighboring homes.

No homes were damaged from the fire and no injuries were reported.

At about 8:15 p.m., emergency crews responded to an injury accident just a few blocks away on Highway 89 at the Safeway shopping center.

The two vehicle accident resulted in one driver being transported to Yavapai Regional Medical center in Prescott. The other driver was treated at the scene.

The cause of both incidents is being investigated.

You understand correct. The CVFD has 3 stations in the district. Two in Chino Valley and one in Paulden. The unfortunate thing is that the property owners in Paulden refuse to allow annexation of the fire district in several areas therefore there is no coverage for them in fire protection. Blame the property owners, not the fine folks at CVFD. They would love to have everyone in Paulden be a part of the district because they care. You can also purchase a protection contract through the CVFD and then you will be covered. If you don't pay the fire district taxes, why should you get the service that I pay for????? There were also several public meetings and newspaper articles that explained this. You should have attended and your always welcome to attend their board meetings if you have questions. I retired from the fire service in Michigan and I feel grateful to live here with such professionals as CVFD and CVPD. Count your blessings and educate yourself before you criticize. The automatic aid that CVFD has with Prescott and Central allows for coverage of areas when our professionals are handling emergencies. Hope this answered your questions!!!

Just want to make sure I understand right. So Paulden Fire crews can run out to Chino to help, but when we have homes here 3 miles away go up in flames, they are dismissed!
