Shorty after 12:20 PM the Kern County Fire Department received multiple calls for a wildland fire in Bodfish. First arriving crews were faced with a wind driven fire with a moderate rate of spread. Crews aggressively attacked the fire to stop the fire from impacting nearby structures.

Crews will remain on scene throughout the night. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

The Kern County Fire Department would like to remind residents to make sure they maintain the required defensible space around their home. The Kern County weather is beginning to heat up and humidities are starting to drop, which is causing the vegetation to dry out and become very susceptible to burning.  

Evacuations: None - No immediate threat to homes

Closures: None
