Fire crews battle foothill wildfire near Lodoga

A wildland fire erupted in dry vegetation near Lodoga on Sunday that threatened to destroy several structures and called for the evacuation of foothill residents.

By Monday morning, the fire had burned about 540 acres and was about 50 percent contained, thanks to great progress fire crews made working on containment lines overnight despite high winds, Cal Fire officials said.

Cal Fire said crews continue to work to strengthen control lines to hold the fire east of the Squaw Creek Inn, located just south of the entrance to East Park Reservoir.

There were a total of 240 firefighters and personnel working what has been named the Sites Fire, which first erupted around 4 PM on Sunday in the 3300 block of Sites Lodoga Road and Campground Road.

Cal Fire is currently battling nine wildfires in their jurisdiction in California, including the Apple Fire, which burned 27,000 acres in Riverside County by Monday and was only 5 percent contained, and the Gold Fire, which burned 23,000 acres in Lassen County, and was 95 percent contained by Monday.

Cal Fire officials said evacuations and road closures in the area are still in effect.

During this same time period two years ago, fire crews battled the Mendocino Complex Fire, which was California’s largest wildfire to date with 459,123 acres burned.
