Merced Fire Gives Crews a Hard Weekend

Firefighters contained a grass fire yesterday morning that burned 15-hundred acres in Merced County. The
fire began Saturday at the San Luis Reservoir when a vehicle fire set the dry brush ablaze. High winds and rough terrain hindered the battle fought by more than
160 firefighters. No injuries were reported and no structures were damaged. Control of the fire is expected by this evening.
