NICE – Firefighters continued their work Sunday mopping up at the scene of a 128-acre fire that was contained Saturday night.


Cal Fire reported that the fire broke out behind Robinson Rancheria Saturday afternoon, quickly climbing up the hill and into steep terrain. Firefighters from Cal Fire, and Northshore and Lakeport Fire Protection Districts fought the blaze.


At the scene Sunday, the trail of the fire was clearly visible, making its way from behind Robinson Rancheria Bingo & Casino, traveling over the hill and back toward more steep terrain near Pyle Road.


Firefighters cut trees and dealt with remaining hot spots around the area of the fire, which left a huge blackened footprint.


Rachelle Trimmer of the Cal Fire Incident Command Center reported that 80 firefighters were on duty Sunday, including a five-engine strike team and supervisors, and a water tender.


Trimmer said one engine with four firefighters would remain at the scene overnight.


Northshore Fire District Chief Jim Robbins said the fire was the largest his agency has fought so far this fire season.
