Careless Actions Around Cottonwood Seeds Can Start Quick-Moving Fires
June 11, 2021
The Golden Valley Fire Department (GVFD) recently responded to its first cottonwood seed fire of the summer that was started by a careless discarding of a cigarette. Cottonwood seeds are very flammable and create fires that can outrun the average person. The GVFD urges residents to be cautious around clusters of cottonwood seeds, especially during dry times of the year.
