Natchitoches Parish Fire District 5 and LFA were dispatched to a grass and woods fire with structures in danger on Hwy. 1 south of Cypress on Sept. 26 at 2:39 pm. High winds made an unintentional fire extend quickly into a pasture and the area surrounding several buildings and farm equipment. NPFD 5 members protected the exposures and LFA used their heavy equipment to cut fire breaks to stop the fire extension and control the fire.
Engines 1 and 5 responded, along with Tanker 2, BR5 and 9 NPFD 5 members
