Valley Springs Fire Update

On a previous post I talked about the a fire in Valley Springs, this is an update.  Apparently the fire was started by a lawn mower.  One of the residents I spoke with last night told me someone mowing their weeds down with a lawn mower started the fire.

I had a chance to go to the fire area and get an update.  There was a rumor that the fire had jumped over hwy 12.  I could not find any evidence of this.  The fire didn’t get to the highway.  The firefighters had it stopped before it got to Quail Oaks Road. There’s a few hot spots and fires still burning, but they are under control. PG&E and fire crews are cleaning up and repairing the wires.  I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves…
