Tuolumne County Fire Marshal Kary Hubbard praised firefighter´s efforts in stopping the flames. “It did burn really close to a couple homes up on Golden Oaks Drive, but firefighters did a really good job saving those structures,” Hubbard said.

Firefighters worked throughout the night and will be back out today. No cause has been determined yet on this fire. Hubbard said as of last night, it is still under investigation.
