Vegetation Fires Contained Through 1:40pm
San Andreas, CA — Through 1:40 this afternoon all vegetation fires in Tuolumne and Calaveras Counties were contained.
The initial fire amounted to only a quarter acre at Hershey Rd. East off Yosemite Rd. in Tuolumne. That fire was quickly contained with minimal spread.
Several vegetation fires were also quickly contained near Paloma Rd. in Calaveras County.
The Air Attack and Helicopter 404 units departed the Hershey Rd. fire to respond to a spot fire on Hwy 108 and Tramway Rd. guiding the ground forces to the exact location. Two engines assisted with that quickly contained fire.
Cause of the fires has yet to be determined. No firefighters or residents were injured and no structures were damaged.
