Cabezut Fire Under Investigation

Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — Fire officials have been investigating what sparked a 2-3 acre vegetation fire that burned in the area of Cabezut Road.

When the first responders arrived on scene, shortly after 6pm on Monday, it was burning on both sides of Cabezut Road, near the Greenley Road intersection. It was a nervous time for many, as it burned near apartments and businesses.

“There were multiple threats, but no structures were damaged,” says Fire Captain Dean Wimberly. Our air resources were in here very quickly, and we were able to keep it off the buildings.”
