Firefighters Respond to Suspicious Tree Fire

Turlock Fire in a Tree

At about 3:56 am Thursday morning, the Turlock Fire Department was dispatched to a reported vegetation fire at Stanislaus County Fairgrounds, 900 North Broadway, Turlock.

When firefighters arrived on scene, they found a tree fully involved next to the fairgrounds arch gate.

Firefighters were able to quickly extinguish the fire and prevent it from spreading to the arch gate or a communication line above.

The fire is being deemed suspicious because a similar fire occurred in the same area on a different tree last week on Tuesday, February 22nd.

The investigation remains on-going. Anyone with information that could assist in the investigation is encouraged to call the Stanislaus Regional Fire Investigations Unit at 209-525-5537.
