llinois Valley Fire District says wildfire season took a dangerous turn for its’ crews this weekend. It wasn’t the flames that put them at risk, it was someone firing a gun.
Illinois Valley Fire District representatives say for the time being they’re no longer going to be making triage assessments on local structures all because of the shots fired this weekend.
They’ve been busy preparing their area in case the Chetco Bar Fire spreads going from house to house, to make sure homes and buildings are protected from flames.
On Sunday their good deed was met with gunfire, six gunshots to be exact.
IVFD’s Jason Bayless says the shots weren’t aimed directly at IVFD crews. They were warning shots. And Bayless says they know what they were being warned about.
