A vegetation fire east of Palermo torches 100 acres

A vegetation fire east of Palermo torches 100 acres

A vegetation fire east of Palermo torched close to 100 acres and threatened at least one home before firefighters were able to stop the flames.

What was first reported as a small one acre fire quickly spread to 91 acres at the intersection of Dunsport and La Porte roads.

The fire was first reported to 911 operators around 1:40 this afternoon as a small vegetation fire.

When the first truck arrived on scene, the flames had already spread to two acres and was rapidly spreading thanks in part to wind and dry conditions. .

Fire crews from Oroville, Gridley and an air attack helicopter from Calfire was able to halt the spread at 91 acres saving the structures in danger from any danger.

Calfire officials say the incident is a reminder to people heading into the holiday weekend and the dryer months to be mindful of anything that can cause a fire.

"This is just very typical of what we're going to see going here on out in what we call normal fire season for butte county,” said Mary Anne Aldrich, CalFire Butte County PIO. “This is one example of why we're urging citizens to be really careful of what they're doing outdoors. One less spark is one less fire."

La Porte Road was closed to one lane as firefighters worked to contain the flames and has since been reopened.

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation but fire fighters believe the flames started near the La Porte Road.
