Brush fire on Mt. Alban of “considerable size”


A large brush fire was called in on Mt. Alban Road at the Open Door Bible Church.

The fire is reported to have consumed several acres and is of “considerable size”. The blaze was a threat to the structure. Bovina provided pumpers to the area to help cut the fire’s path.

“What we’re doing is we’re cutting the fire off to the structure in the woods. [We] don’t know exactly how big this fire is, but it’s a pretty considerable size,” stated Jeff Riggs.

Please avoid this area if possible and give firefighters plenty of room to extinguish the flames.
