San Andreas Area Fire Contained

The 22.1 acre Gold fire is 100% contained.  Crews and equipment worked on mop-up efforts throughout the night and will remain on scene today.  Cal-Fire reports the fire, off Gold Strike Road and Cemetery Ave in San Andreas, was caused by equipment use. Cal Fire has issued a citation to the equipment operator for causing the fire and for not having firefighting tools within 25 feet.   The fire was first reported around 4:30 and quickly spread to the surrounding vegetation.   At one point two structures were reported threaten, but were not damaged.  Ground crews were assisted by both helicopter and fixed wing aircraft.   Yesterday’s fire should serve as a reminder of the dry conditions throughout the region.   For more information on safe equipment use visit, readyforwildfire.org/Equipment-Use.
