Suspicious Fire in Tuolumne

Firefighters are investigating a blaze that burned an acre of grass in Tuolumne City yesterday. Tuolumne
Fire District Chief Kevin Patten says the cause is suspicious.

Two air tankers and several firefighters on the ground corralled the fire quickly with no
injuries. Loss is estimated at about 200 dollars. The fire was in the same area that burned two years ago, destroying a vintage tressle that had been used by the
West Side Lumber Company.
