HIDDEN VALLEY LAKE – South Lake County Fire and Cal Fire quickly subdued a small grass fire that broke out near Hidden Valley Lake Wednesday afternoon.


The two-acre Hartmann Incident was located on the corner of Hartmann Road and Highway 29. Firefighters were dispatched at 1:38 p.m., said Cal Fire Capt. Paul Duncan.


At one point a lot of resources were assigned to the fire as part of Cal Fire's standard response, including one air attack, two tankers to drop retardant, one helicopter with eight personnel, six engines and two dozers. Duncan said a total of 28 personnel were on scene.


He said Cal Fire responded along with South Lake County Fire.


The fire, which was located in grass and brush, was completely out by 2 p.m., Duncan said.


No cause has been reported, Duncan said.
