Stafford Fire: Not Completely Contained (Photos)
“We made progress overnight,” declared Cal Fire spokesperson Laura Coleman about the fire that began about 3 p.m Thursday near the Shively exit just north of Stafford. “Forward progress has stopped….[But] we’re not calling it completely contained yet.”
Coleman said that a large number of resources would continue to be directed at the Stafford Fire.
Yesterday, this reporter was given a tour by Battalion Chief Paul Savona who was looking at the possibility of arson. Multiple small fires lined northbound Hwy 101 when the first fire personnel arrived at the scene. This could be a sign of arson or an accidental event such as a chain dragging, Savona said.
Below are some of the photos from the fire.
