Smoke and flames burned along Avenue B and 5th Street in Yuma Saturday.
Crews from Rural/Metro quickly responded to douse a fire that a man admitted to setting.
The flames burned close to power lines, trees and brush.
A man at the scene said he was burning his trash with a permit.
Charly McMurdie, spokesperson for Rural/Metro says permit or not, today is not a controlled burned day.
Yuma county sheriff's deputies also were on scene.
Still no word if deputies issued a citation.
