A fire was reported near the Paonia Airport at about 5 p.m. Paonia firefighters and sheriff's deputies were dispatched to an address on Slate Paint Road, where the property owner reported he'd been working on his vehicle.

A hay fire was reported on Ash Mesa Road at 4:45 p.m. Deputies determined the fire was likely caused by an ag burn that had taken place earlier in the day. The owner of the hay and the neighbor believed to be responsible for the fire are working out payment arrangements.
