Small blaze burns near Witter Springs

WITTER SPRINGS – A small fire that broke out around midday Friday burned a structure and threatened a home.


The fire was reported at about noon, said Ryan Wangberg, a firefighter/EMT with Northshore Fire Protection District's Upper Lake station.


Wangberg said Northshore Fire sent a water tender, an engine, a battalion chief and three firefighters to the blaze, located near a residence up in the hills. Cal Fire also was prepared to respond but Northshore Fire canceled them while en route.


The fire burned about an acre and a half and destroyed an outbuilding, said Wangberg. The home also was in danger but firefighters stopped the fire from getting to it.


Firefighters controlled the blaze within about 40 minutes, Wangberg estimated.


Wangberg said he did not have information on what caused the fire.
