Vegetation Fire Near Manzanita Lake Quickly Handled

NORTH FORK — Just after 3 p.m. this afternoon, crews responded to a vegetation fire reported near Manzanita Lake.

A full wildland dispatch was called up, including Cal Fire, Madera County Fire, Sierra National Forest and Helicopter 520.

The first engine at scene at 3:23 p.m. reported the fire at about one-quarter acre on Shinn Cabin Lane near the Siderman Family Camp (formerly known as the Putney Ranch) burning in dry grass with a moderate rate of spread.

The forward progress was stopped within minutes of crews arriving, and resources not already at scene were cancelled shortly thereafter.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
