Firefighter Injured In Copperopolis Fire

Copperopolis, CA — A fire that burned 12 acres of woodland in Copperopolis also injured a firefighter Thursday.

The fire broke out at around 1 p.m. at 4700 Morgan Road.

Barbara George with CDF says the firefighter was from a helicopter crew out of Columbia. The unidentified man sprained his ankle.

The fire was extinguished at close to 8 p.m. The cause was an escaped debris burn, which was out of compliance.
