Westberry trails fire caused by recreational vehicles?

Posted:

Fire investigators believe recreational vehicles are responsible for a September fire.
 
Jim Strain with great plains fire dispatch says he suspects an ATV or motorcycle may have sparked the 10 -acre fire that burned between Highway 44 and Nemo road, west of the  Westberry trails subdivision.

Investigators say they've ruled out natural causes such as lightning.

Strain says the area where the fire began is frequently used for ATV and similar recreational vehicles.
 
No structures were lost in the fire, which burned on federal and private land.
