Small fire is doused on Mt. Bullion

Wednesday, April 30, 2014 - 4:30 p.m. - Crews from CAL FIRE and Mt. Bullion Conservation Camp teamed up to extinguish an escaped controlled burn this afternoon.

The fire began in a log pile before strong winds pushed flames into vegetation and down an embankment.

CAL FIRE Unit Chief Chief Nancy Koerperich today issued a statement reminding  county residents to complete 100-foot perimeters around homes before local fuels dry out further.
