West Point Area Fire Contained

Sponsored by:

West Point, CA — Firefighters made quick work of an apparent escape debris burn above West Point that broke out around noon.

Cal Fire reports the fire in the Schaads Reservoir area was contained at 1/4 acre in size.  When firefighters arrived on the scene, the flames were moving at a slow rate, according to Cal Fire, allowing crews to put the fire out in under an hour.  No structures were threatened.  Two engines will remain on scene mopping up for the next couple of hours.

A reminder – today is a no burn day in both Calaveras and Tuolumne counties.  Cal Fire says the property owner could face fines, which is a decision that will be left up to the Pollution Control Board.
