Ranch Fire 100% Contained

Cal Fire reports that full containment of the Ranch fire was reached yesterday. The fire broke out in the early afternoon last Thursday the 26th in the Mt Aukum – Somerset area and burned a total of 140 acres.  According to Cal Fire spokesman Bryce Bennett, it’s been determined that the Ranch Fire was caused by a citizen grinding metal near dry grass.  The citizen was cited.   As we head into a week of extremely high temperatures, CAL FIRE would like to remind everyone to exercise extreme caution while operating any equipment near dry grass, and to visit prepareforwildfire.org for tips on safe equipment use.
