TWO FIRES IN THREE DAYS IN SAME YUCCA VALLEY NEIGHBORHOOD

TWO FIRES IN THREE DAYS IN SAME YUCCA VALLEY NEIGHBORHOOD

Yucca Valley firefighters are fighting a second fire in three days in the same neighborhood north of Highway 62. About 7 Friday evening, firefighters responded to a blaze near the Hi-Desert Water District’s recharge basin at Sunnyslope and Pioneertown Road. That fire was put out in about 15 minutes and was contained to inside the fenced-in area of the pond. Although the cause of the fire is under investigation, Battalion Chief Mike Snow said the fire was started likely due to human activity. Then, about 3:30 this morning, firefighters and multiple fire engines responded to another vegetation fire near Sage Avenue and Sunnyslope, just north of Sunnyslope. Today’s fire is about 1 ½ miles east of Friday’s fire. Firefighters were still at the scene at 7:30 this morning.
