The Kern County Fire Department received a call for a grass fire in the area of 40th Street West and Backus Road at approximately 3:03 this afternoon. Upon arrival, crews were faced with a 10 acre fire in light flashy fuels, moving at a moderate rate of spread. Quick actions by fire crews kept the fire to a total of 17 acres. No structures were threatened and there are no injuries to report. The cause of the fire was determined to be locals in the area discharging fire arms.

The Kern County Fire Department would like to remind residents living in high fire hazard areas to exercise caution when using fire arms.  Due to recent hot weather and dry fuels, residents should make sure they maintain the defensible space around their homes.
