BEATTY — The Beatty Volunteer Fire Department responded to a brush fire in the Amargosa riverbed near the end of Amargosa Street on Sunday evening.
The fire apparently started from a campfire that got out of control.
Chief Mike Harmon said they discovered a ring of rocks that had been used to contain a fire.
Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire rather quickly.
No injuries were reported.
