VIDEO: With fires to the west in Grant County and fires to the north in Canada, the 2019 fire season is off to a hot, windy and dry start. “It's not even just important, it's necessary,” Shalene Harris said. Now more than ever, the need for defensible spaces is paramount in protecting your family and your property. It’s a tiring task, one that takes days, but that’s where the “G-team” comes in. You guessed it, goats. Their mission, clear the noxious weeds and underbrush that add fuel to fires. “We're finding that these goats can clear off a half acre a day of moderate growth. If there's a little more brush then it will take a little bit longer to do,” Les Camp said. Camp and Harris own Leshay Ranch just south of Cheney.
