A Firefighter’s Look at Yesterday’s Blaze Near Capetown
The Ferndale Volunteer Fire Department fought the Bear Fire yesterday near Capetown. Their Facebook status said the blaze was “caused by a power pole insulator that exploded.” One of their firefighters, Matt Knowles, took photos.
After the fire, a broken insulator was found surrounded by charred grass.
The firefighters had the combination for this lock as they left the area. But sometimes they don’t. If you know there is a fire, unlock your gates to allow emergency access. This will help crews get there quickly and save you a cut lock.
Finishing the job.

Thank you, firefighters! The structure was saved!
