Downed Power Lines Spark Fire
West Point, CA — Cal Fire has released the cause of a vegetation fire earlier this week in Calaveras County. The flames broke out in the 900 block of Skull Flat Road in West Point Wednesday at 6:37 am after power lines came down.
It took firefighters all day to contain the ¼ acre brush fire as it was in a remote area making it difficult for crews to fight the flames. PG & E crews were called to the scene to repair the lines.
