USA — Brush areas surrounding the Rose Bowl stadium will be treated with the wildland fire retardant Phos-Chek from 9 a.m. to early afternoon on June 30.

The Pasadena Fire Department officials said they are taking action to lessen potential hazards during the July 4 holiday and into the summer season.

Fire retardant is one of the primary tools firefighters use as a preventive measure and to contain fires in untreated areas.

City officials said Phos-Chek helps keep trees and grassland from burning. Its main ingredients are phosphates and fertilizers that prevent the ignition of fire and assist in regrowth of areas after a fire has been put out.
