Firefighters On Scene Of Vegetation Fire On Triangle Road

MARIPOSA COUNTY — Firefighters have been called out once again to reports of a vegetation fire in Mariposa County.

At about 9:15 a.m., crews responded to a fire on Triangle Road just west of Darrah Road.

The first unit at scene reported the fire at about three acres burning in grass and brush, and unable to determine how many structures are threatened. There is one reported about 300 feet to the west of the fire.

A full wildland dispatch is en route, including seven Cal Fire engines, two County engines, two dozers, two hand crews and aircraft on order.

At 9:58 a.m., Air Attack arrived overhead. Though there was a hose lay all the way around the fire, the potential for spread and spot fires led the incident commander to request retardant drops.

At 10:06 a.m., the fire was reported at 3 to 5 acres, with retardant lines across the north and east.

By 10:15 a.m., all units not already at scene were cancelled.

Triangle Road was closed at Darrah Road, and also at Silva Road.

At 10:53 a.m., the fire was contained at 2.3 acres. Estimate 3 hours for mop-up.
