Sponsored by:

Jamestown, CA — Fire officials are investigating the area´s first wildfire of the season.

Kary Hubbard of the CDF says it began at the end of Omega Mine Road near Jamestown. It took roughly three hours to bring the blaze under control after it blackened roughly 12 acres.

Hubbard says crews responded to the scene at about 1:30 in the afternoon with four inmate crews, and four pieces of equipment. Hubbard reminds residents that now is the time of year to be conscious of fire safety.

Residents are reminded that burn permits are required, and extra caution is warranted while burning debris and engaging in other activities that pose a fire risk.

The cause of yesterday´s fire is under investigation.
