In the early afternoon of April 2nd, 2024, CAL FIRE, alongside local fire departments from Fort Jones, Etna, and the Scott Valley, were called into action to tackle a fierce vehicle fire on Scarface Road. The incident, which occurred at precisely 1:57 pm, saw a vehicle engulfed in flames that had also managed to ignite a 20×20 foot area of surrounding vegetation.

Thanks to the swift and coordinated response of the fire crews, they were able to completely extinguish the vehicle fire and promptly contain the small vegetation fire before it could spread any further. The teamwork displayed by the different departments was commendable and undoubtedly crucial in preventing what could have been a more severe wildfire.
