Tamarancho Vegetation Fire: 9/18/2016

Ross Valley Fire Department assisted Marin County Fire Department to quickly contain a vegetation fire in the area of Camp Tamarancho west of Fairfax Sunday, September 18th.  The 1.8 acre fire was reported at 4:50 PM, and burned in a remote area near White's Hill in Fairfax.  The fire was contained by ground firefighting resources including engine companies and hand crews, with the assistance of aircraft from CAL FIRE.  No structures were damaged.  

As the Ross Valley enters the peak of fire season, this is a great opportunity to make sure that your home has adequate defensible space.  For more tips on protecting your home and neighborhood from wildfire, visit www.firesafemarin.org.

Marin's Wildfire Detection Camera system was used to help firefighters locate and monitor the wildfire.
