Vegetation Fire, Crews Kept Busy in Southern Monterey County

At approximately 11:30 a.m. on Monday April 24th 2017, units from the South Monterey County Fire Protection District (SoMoCo) and the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) responded to a wildland fire in the King City area near the intersection of Highway 101 and Jolon Road. The fire was burning in grass and brush with no structures threatened or damaged.

Upon arrival, firefighters found approximately three acres of grass fire burning, including an area adjacent to the base of a power pole. While firefighters were controlling hotspots, crews discovered damaged powerlines.

While firefighters were busy with this fire, units from the City of Soledad, the Correctional Training Facility Fire Department, the Greenfield Fire Department, the City of Gonzales Fire Department and the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) took reports of a second fire. The second fire was in the foothills, east of the Soledad City limits. Upon arrival firefighters found a fire being driven by strong winds up a hillside. Crews kept the fire to eight acres. Workers using grinding and cutting tools, when sparks caught nearby grass on fire.

No evacuations or road closures were initiated nor were there any structures damaged. There were no firefighter injuries during either incident.

CAL FIRE would like to remind everyone to be aware of current weather conditions while using power equipment.

CAL FIRE would like to remind everyone that wildland fire season is rapidly approaching and residents are urged to be aware of current weather conditions and to use precautions when using power tools or mowing their properties.
