Fires continue to keep firefighters busy around state

Fires continue to keep firefighters busy around state

Kern County firefighters were able to get 100 percent containment today on a 1,000-acre fire near Maricopa today, but other fires around the state threatened communities, including those on the Central Coast.

In Cambria, firefighters were able to get control of a 3-acre fire but not before it threatened businesses in the seaside community north of San Luis Obispo. Parts of the town’s historic and tourist-friendly downtown were evacuated before firefighters, supported by aircraft, were able to get control of the fire.

The Maricopa fire closed Highway 166 for a portion of the day, but firefighters were able to contain the blaze.

Northeast of Fresno, the Gold Country town of Mariposa was evacuated as the Detwiler Fire, which had consumed more than 25,000 acres, threatened the community of more than 2,000 residents. That fire is about 5 percent contained and has closed Highway 49 — the north-south link through the region’s historic Gold Country towns.

Another fire that has impacted Kern County air quality is the Park Fire, burning west of Coalinga and near Parkfield. That fire has burned more than 1,000 acres and is 15 percent contained. Just to the south of the Park Fire, firefighters were nearing full containment of the Garza Fire, which has burned more than 48,000 acres north of Highway 41 in Kings County.
