Firefighters were able to get control of the fire thanks to some cooperation from the weather conditions.

“If we had more wind it could have spread the fire throughout the structure very quickly causing more embers, carrying embers throughout the neighborhood and into this field beside us that is. Despite some of the moisture earlier this year, it’s become dry again,” said Aurora Fire Cpt. Sean Dolan.
