Grass Fire On Yosemite Springs Parkway

COARSEGOLD – A small vegetation fire broke out this afternoon on Yosemite Springs Parkway, just south of Copper Creek Drive.

Crews were dispatched just after 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 11 to the fire, burning in dry grass on the west side of the road.

Cleaning up firelines with McLeodsCal Fire Battalion Chief Chris Christopherson estimated the area burned at less than a half-acre. The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but Christopherson noted that it started at the edge of the road.

Firefighters quickly had a line around the blaze, and though a bulldozer was dispatched to the incident, it was not needed, so the operator worked the fire line with the rest of the crews.
