Mother Lode Views Focus; Structure Fires

Sonora, CA — Deadly structure fires continue to plague the Mother Lode.

With that thought in mind we are devoting this weekend’s Mother Lode Views to a number of preventative measures in an effort to reduce structure fires that have taken four lives within the past year.

CAL Fire Investigator Rommie Jones, CAL Fire Prevention Officer Nancy Longmore and Steve Gregory from the Tuolumne County Fire Department will comment on the traditional causes of structure fires and how they can be avoided.

Jones will specifically comment on the potential dangers for those who live in mobile homes while Ms. Longmore will discuss the significance of regular fire drills for those living in private residences.

Mother Lode Views can be heard Sundays at 8am on 93.5 KKBN, 8:30am on 1450-KVML and 9am on STAR 92.7.
