Jeffco sheriff’s deputies put out a small grass fire in the Ken-Caryl area Monday afternoon before it had a chance to spread.
The fire, in the 9900 block of Whistling Elk Drive south of Deer Creek Road, started about 4:15 p.m. after a male teenager was playing with fireworks.
Deputies were able to contain the fire to a quarter acre using rakes, shovels and fire extinguishers borrowed from neighboring houses, said sheriff's spokesman Mark Techmeyer.
