San Andreas, Ca — CAL Fire says the 66 acre Gold Rush fire is now completely contained.
The fire, which broke out late Thursday afternoon, was located near Hwy 49 and Gold Strike Rd. Firefighters were challenged by the fact that it was located on steep terrain and in a canyon. CAL Fire reports that one out building was lost as a result of the blaze.
Portions of Hwy 49 were temporarily closed down Thursday evening. The cause remains under investigation.
