Fire Beneath Foresthill Bridge Threatens Homes
A vegetation fire beneath the Foresthill Bridge started at around 2pm Tuesday and was attacked quickly by a number of area agencies including Cal Fire, Placer County Fire, Auburn City Fire, Newcastle Fire and the U.S. Forest Service. The crews have held the burn to just 4 acres and because of fire breaks that had been cut earlier in the year they managed to get control of the blaze before it reached sub divisions at the top of the canyon. Roads around the bridge remained closed for some time so that suppresion efforts could continue.
