Threee Weekend Fires in Mother Lode

Sponsored by:

Firefighters had a busy weekend in the Mother Lode.

Two fires yesterday and one on Saturday evening had firefighters working all weekend long.

A fire at a house roughly 50-years old occurred last night at the 11-thousand block of Highway 108, about a mile from the county line.

The 2500 square foot house was reported to be a total loss.

One firefighter suffered an eye injury and was released back to the scene.

There´s still no word on a cause or damage.


A flue fire yesterday in the San Andreas area left six residents displaced.

The blaze apparently began in the flue and spread to the attic.

This fire happened on the 500-block of Russell Road in San Andreas.

There´s still no word on a cause or damage there either.


And at 7pm Saturday night, a fire at an unoccupied house on Highway 49 and Carson Hill caused the structure to be a total loss.

Investigators are checking out the fire, which may be suspicious in nature.
