Roll Over Fire On Highway 49

CAL Fire crews were called to a roadside fire Friday afternoon in Calaveras County.  When they arrived at Highway 49 and Gold Strike road just after 3pm, they discovered a vehicle that had flipped on its roof and caught fire. The flames had spread to some nearby vegetation. The fire quickly spread from a small spot to 20 acres within half an hour.  Crews were able to stop the forward progress and contained the fire to 25 acres just after 4pm. Highway 49 was closed between Highway 12 and Gold Strike Road and a section of Gold Strike between Highway 49 and San Andreas, while firefighters battled the blaze. No structures were threatened and no injuries to firefighters were reported.
