At about 11:21 pm Friday night, the Turlock Fire Department was dispatched to a reported trash fire behind Green Grub, 553 North Golden State Boulevard, Turlock.
When firefighters arrived on scene, they found a dumpster fully involved. Firefighters were able to quickly bring the fire under control and extinguish it shortly thereafter with the use of a front bucket attack line.
Firefighters checked for extension and none was found.
The area is frequented by transients and could possibly be arson.
The investigation remains on-going. Anyone with information that could assist in the investigation is encouraged to call Fire Marshal Mark Gomez at 209-669-2119.
