According to a post by KMUD News Coordinator, Cynthia Elkins, on the KMUD News Facebook Page,  Thurs., Aug. 30 around 1 pm:

"Firefighters are responding to a fire on Sequoia Road in the Fruitland Ridge area. More info soon, and if you missed last night's news, the measure to form a new fire protection district in Fruitland Ridge failed by less than 2 percent of the 2/3 majority needed. Chief Mike Lake says it could mean the end of their fire dept."  Click here for that newscast.

Two subsequent posts by Cynthia Elkins indicated the following:

(Approx: 2:30 pm):
"According to CalFire Chief Marty Hobbs, they have stopped the forward progress of the fire and are currently holding it at about 2 acres. Hobbs says the fire is burning mainly in grassland but did get a little into the understory of some trees. He says they have a helicopter helping and that things are looking good with firefighting efforts. Hobbs adds that they have limited access on a narrow road. He asks residents and others to please avoid driving in the area if possible and to please NOT drive to the area of the fire to watch."

(Approx. 4:25 pm)
"CalFire Chief Marty Hobbs says the fire is now contained and under control. Firefighters are in mop-up mode and are beginning to release equipment and personnel."

Tune into the KMUD Local News at 6 pm for more information.
