veg fire

Crews work their way toward a vegetation fire, with the call coming in shortly before 8:30 p.m. on Friday, April 24. Modesto, Stanislaus Consolidated, and Escalon fire crews responded to the reported vegetation fire adjacent to Liberini and River roads in Oakdale. Firefighters found approximately one-eighth to one-half acre on fire in heavy vegetation in a remote section of the Oakdale Recreation Area on the north side of the boat launch access road. No structures were threatened; crews contained the fire within 30 minutes of arrival then spent an additional two hours mopping up to ensure the fire was completely out.
