Power Lines Down, Unrelated to Calaveras County Brush Fire

Officials in Calaveras County were busy Monday night with downed power lines and an unrelated vegatation fire.

Before 9 o´clock Monday night, crews responded to reports of a fallen tree in Sheep Ranch that took some power lines with it at Fricot City Road and Sheep Ranch Road. There´s still no word from PG&E on the number of customers affected by that outage.

And a short time later, fire crews were called to Sheep Ranch Road and Fullen Road for a brush fire unrelated to the downed power lines. Officials say it may have been a controlled burn which got out of control. The fire was extinguished around 9:40 pm.
