San Andreas, Ca — Crews will be on hand today to continue the effort to extinguish yesterday´s 111 acre vegetation fire northeast of San Andreas.
“We have plans for another 10 engines to come in, with six hand crews and two water tenders” says CAL Fire Battalion Chief Jeff Millar. He says the official cause of yesterday´s fire has yet to be determined, but it appears it may have been from a burn pile that got out of control.
The fire was reported at 2:30pm and contained at 7:30pm.
Firefighters have been busier than normal for this time of year.This is a fire we´d expect in July and August,” adds Millar.The fire season has been moved up and that translates into a longer and busier fire season. We need the public to be more careful with everything they do when they are out in the wild lands.”
