The Guam Fire Department is reporting a grass fire, approximately 3 to 4 acres in the valley area between Inarajan Middle School and the Solar Farm in Inarajan.

Both GFD and Agriculture’s Forestry units have responded but are unable to gain access to suppress this fire, says acting GFD spokeswoman Cherika Chargualaf.

Units continue to make periodic checks for access points.

In addition, there was a 911 call reporting three sick children at the Inarajan Middle school at 12:30 pm, possibly from the smoke in the area.

GFD EMS units responded and treated all children, but transport was refused.
