Keith Bryant/The Weekly Vista Bella Vista police officer Travis Trammell approaches a house after a grill fire was reported at 2 Marlin Lane last Thursday, Feb. 1. Bella Vista Fire Department battalion chief Robert Hamilton said the fire was contained in the grill, but it could have been serious because the grill had a canister of propane in place and was placed close to the house, on a wooden deck. The fire was caused by grease built up in the grill, he said, which ignited when the grill was lit.
