A Berrendo Volunteer Fire Department crew member, who asked not to be identified, sprays down a small fire Thursday morning in a pecan grove on North Montana Avenue between West Pine Lodge Road and West Berrendo Avenue. The flames were extinguished in about an hour. According to the firefighter and Chaves County Sheriff Britt Snyder, the grove owners or workers started the fire to burn some branches that had been removed from trees but the fire grew out of control. The Sheriff’s Department was called to communicate proper safety measures to the property owners and workers.
