Firefighters battle two Sonoma County vegetation fires

May 24, 2012

Cal Fire crews were working two vegetation fires in remote reaches of Sonoma County early Thursday morning, a sign that summer is upon us and, with it, drying brush conditions.

Firefighters were called shortly before 6 a.m. to a 1-acre blaze in heavy timber off Palmer Creek Road in the hills between Healdsburg and Austin Creek State Recreation Area, Cal Fire personnel said.

A power line was down in the vicinity, suggesting it may have caused the fire, though it was not yet certain, Cal Fire Capt. Tom Knecht said.
