Wind Whipped Multiple Debris Fires in Shelter Cove
“I don’t even know how many there were,” Antony told us.
“If someone hadn’t reported [the flames,] it would have spread,” she explained. “It was so windy.”
Antony said someone “living illegally in a camper, cleared all those trees. Then just started fires at the end of a cul de sac.”
The fires ended up burning approximately 1/4 acre, according to Antony. Shelter Cove Fire worked on the incident for about four hours. A Cal Fire engine assisted them. “All hands on deck for several hours,” Antony said.
Then she added, “It is dry…Everyone needs to be careful…Even if they have a burn permit and even if it is a burn day, they have to use good judgement.”
