Central Yavapai firefighters put out a half-acre wildland fire Thursday afternoon that started in a woodpile in Prescott Valley's Poquito Valley subdivision.

At 1:30 p.m., firefighters answered a call from a neighbor about a fire in the 7300 block of East Airfield Road near a home.

"Firefighters used a master stream device, which is like a deck gun, to knock down the fire in a large woodpile of fencing materials," Central Yavapai Fire Marshal Rick Chase said. "Firefighters then spent several hours doing overhaul."

The occupants were not home at the time, no one was injured, and no structures were damaged, Chase said.

"It's unknown how the fire started," Chase said. "The winds started to kick up, and if they didn't get the fire out, it would have gotten big. The fire got really close to work equipment, trailers and outbuildings, but they were able to keep the fire away from them."
