Pickup Burns Just Off Road 200

NORTH FORK – A full wildland fire response was called out when a report of a car fire in a heavily wooded area near North Fork came it to the Mariposa Command Center.

Dave Welfield was driving his Chevy pickup out Hadley Road just a few hundred feet of Road 200 when he says he looked in the rear view mirror and saw flames in the bed of the truck.
