On June 1, 2006 an employee of a fence company started the La Barranca fire by grinding on a metal fence post south of Sedona, Arizona. Six days later the fire was 95% contained after burning 836 acres and 3 houses. At the time, the Coconino National Forest reported that the estimated fire suppression costs were $1.2 million.
The fence company's insurance company just agreed to pay $500,000 to the US Forest Service to cover a portion of the suppression costs.
HERE is a link to the InciWeb data about the fire.
