Fireworks May Be Responsible for Vegetation Fire Early This Morning Near Briceland
At approximately 1 a.m. there was a vegetation fire alongside Briceland Road near Shop Road. The initial 30’x30′ spot was quenched by crews from Rio Dell Fire Department (covering the Cal Fire Station), Briceland Fire Department and Redway Fire Department after it expanded to 90’x30′. An investigation is ongoing but locals believe the blaze was caused by fireworks.
