A grass fire is under investigation after two people were seen Tuesday near the incident at the Longmont Waste Diversion Center.
“Two people were seen leaving the area,” said Patrick Kramer, public information officer for the Longmont Fire Department.
Kramer said the fire department is trying to get in touch with the two people who were seen near where the fire sparked.
The fire burned about 10 acres of marsh and vegetation east of the Longmont Waste Diversion Center, Kramer said.
No structures were burned, and no one was injured, he said.
“They did stop the fire from getting to a rail car, so that was good,” Kramer said.
According to a Twitter post Tuesday, both firefighters and police were on scene.
