Firefighters contain small fire in Big Valley area

KELSEYVILLE – Firefighters were able to quickly subdue a small grass fire in the Big Valley area Thursday morning.


The small grass fire was reported at around 11 a.m. at the corner of Big Valley and Renfro, said Capt. Jim Dowdy of the Kelseyville Fire Protection District.


It was located on the roadside and began burning into an open field, said Dowdy. No structures were threatened.


The first Kelseyville engine on scene was able to contain the fire, said Dowdy, with a Lakeport Fire Protection District engine coming for backup being canceled before arrival.


Dowdy said the fire was held to a quarter-acre in size, and contained within about 10 minutes.


The cause is still under investigation, he said.


Red flag conditions for high winds were expected in the area today, said Dowdy, adding, “We're not really seeing any right now.”
