It was a small fire just east of mile marker 119 but enough to remind us that it is fire season. Assistant Whisky Creek VFD Chief John McGee said the pattern indicated a lit cigarette had been thrown from a vehicle as the fire moved up the embankment from the lower left in a narrow path and spread out as it moved to the right, turned left and went up the hill towards a house that had "very good defensible space around it".

Assistant Chief McGee said there were 5 guys fighting the fire with jackets and blankets and 2 GC Sheriffs with small fire extinguishers when the Whisky Creek and Santa Clara VFD's arrived. The 5 citizens who stopped and took action to slow its spread were:
Victor Carrillo, Santa Clara;
Melvin Sedillo. Santa Clara;
Jazmin Soto, Bayard;
Jaydri Marquez, Bayard and
Ramon Rivera, Santa Clara.
