BRIGHTON, Colo. — It took crews about two hours to bring a fire under in Brighton that involved several storage tanks, a Facebook post from Fort Lupton Fire Protection District (FLFD) says.
The fire near Weld County Road 27 and Weld County Road 4 was likely sparked by lightning around 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, according to Brighton Fire Rescue (BFR).
The agency reported that there were no injuries. They also said that while the tanks can be used for oil storage, they're currently empty.
A total of four fiberglass production tanks were involved in the fire, according to FLFD.
Crews used water tenders to shuttle water to the fire site to extinguish the fire, according to BFR. Foam was also brought in and, according to FLFD, the fire was under control just before 3 p.m.
