Ebbetts Pass Fire Department Made Quick Work of Structure Fire Off of Hwy 4

Murphys, CA...Last Weekend EPFD responded to a structure fire on the corner of Cedar Vista and Highway 4, with a report of a person still inside. Units arrived on scene and confirmed that there was no rescue needed, all occupants were out. The fire was challenging do to the roof construction over a manufactured home that had a high fuel load of stored items within and also a broken fire hydrant. Crews were able to extinguish the fire and prevent the spread of any fire to the vegetation.

Very scarey incident. Living close by and seeing activity there the past few years was concerning needless to say. Tent on the roof, bull horns on the roof joists, bomb shelter dug under the modular???? Outside in a bath robe during a snow storm screaming and yelling. (Hallucinating perhaps) asked if he needed my help and he went inside. Really hope he’s ok, seemed like a descent person.

    Broken hydrant. Maybe CCWD and EPFD. Should exercise the system one a year. Prevention isn’t that what you preach. Just more money for raises. And shining new equipment.

      Meant for a once,year flush the hydrant. Inspected the hydrants. We need more. Not a dork that needs a badge and uniform. Go to work. Look at CPUD. A joke rate increase for something acceptable in the 40s asking for money now. What and who is in charge. It’s no wonder. Newborns say put power outages in the ground. If you have ever actually had to find a power outage underneath the ground. Let’s just say you to all the newborns look underground. Good luck. Overhead easiest to fix, less cost effective. The pockets your grandfather worked for couldn’t afford it to be buried. Yet you built in a foothills, mountains. EPFD. Quite hanging out looking good, get to work. Be the solution. Not at Big Trees Market. ps merits thanks for nothing.

        Hope your neighbor gets medical help, seems he needs it.
        All hyds should be operated at least once a year, just like all line valves should be located and worked to break off the crustation off the brass operation stem, just like at your home or they'll become frozen.

        There are many more updated practices to put lines underground today. More junction boxes would make finding problems easier. Lots of more sophisticated line testing equipment today. Do you realize that there are lines ran under the ocean dealing with oil wells and testing equipment for them? The underground lines are needed for safety in California yesterday. Enough of your nay say.

Thank God for Measure A

Good thing Measure A passed! Or else we wouldn't have firefighters to put out the meth lab that would have caught my vacation home on fire. Since I live in the Bay Area, I wouldn't have been there to watch my precious 2nd home catch fire from all my overgrown beautiful saplings that cover the ground between the meth lab and my place.

    Agreed. There needs to be some serious removal of trees with logging in that area. It is another Paradise, CA. just waiting to happen. Putting others lives in danger to try and save those tree houses is plain stupidity. As with Paradise, the Fire Retardant could never get through the trees to save homes.
