Two Small Grass Fires Near Ione Over The Weekend

Two Small Grass Fires Near Ione Over The Weekend 

Fire crews rolled to two small grass fires in the Ione area over the weekend. The largest of the pair burned close to 3 acres of vegetation in the area of Irish Hill and Carbondale roads. Air support was called in to assist ground crews. Then late Sunday afternoon, units responded to the report of a small roadside fire off of Highway 104 and Foothill Boulevard. That fire was quickly contained to just a ¼ acre/ Ione City Fire Chief Ken Mackey reminds us, with the red flag fire warning issued by the National Weather Service, all it takes is one spark or lapses of judgment to ignite a major blaze!
