Grass Fire Squelched Northeast of Oakland
A fast moving fire burned two acres of grass northeast of Oakland Tuesday afternoon.
Crews from the Douglas Forest Protective Association and Oakland Rural Fire Department were dispatched to the fire on Driver Valley Road just before 5 pm. The first units to arrive on scene of the fire reported that it was about a quarter acre in size and was being pushed by a strong wind. Crews from both agencies aggressively attacked the blaze and stopped the forward spread of the fire at two acres.
A preliminary fire investigation indicated that the cause of the Driver Valley Fire was related to the mowing of dry grass.
