East Bakersfield, CA

Just after 6:45 this evening, the Kern County Fire Department received a call for a grass fire north of Redbank Road on Vineland Road. Two KCFD fire-fighters passing through the area were the first on scene and reported two acres of grass on fire moving at a rapid rate of spread. As more fire-fighters arrived, they worked to tie into existing roads and stop the spread of the fire. The fire moved in the south-east direction, fuelled by dry grass and 10-15 mph winds. The fire has been contained at 24 acres. Crews have mopped up the fire and have completed assignment. KCFD Fire Investigators are looking into the cause.
