Stallion Springs, CA

At 3:02 p.m., Kern County Fire Department Emergency Dispatchers started receiving the first, of nearly two dozen calls, for smoke and flames on the hillside near High Gun Drive. First arriving firefighters found a fire approximately 3 acres in size. Due to access issues, additional off-road capable Patrols were requested to support fire suppression efforts. Favorable weather conditions, combined with an aggressive attack by ground and air resources, kept the fire to 4.4 acres. Kern County’s Rio Bravo- Crew 7 remained on seen through the night to strengthen containment lines and mop up hot spots. The cause of this fire is under investigation. There were no injuries reported by civilians or firefighters. The Kern County Fire Department reminds our customers that working smoke detectors are essential to the safety of you and your family
