Memorial Day Weekend had a busy kickoff for Western Slope Fire fighters.  Grand Junction Fire Department’s  Battalion Chief Doug Walsh says the crew tackled three structure fires on Friday, including a fire at Wal Greens on First at Patterson.

Walsh says that with the traditional kickoff to summer behind us it’s especially important for outdoor grillers to make sure all charcoal is fully extinguished before dumping.  He adds that fire fighters are already trying to spread the message of safety in advance of upcoming 4th of July Celebrations throughout Western Colorado.
