At about 12:36am Wednesday morning, Turlock Fire and Turlock Police responded to a vegetation fire at E. F Street and S. Golden State Boulevard.
When units arrived on scene, they reported a 20×20 fire in the field just west of the 1000 block of S. Center Street, making it just outside the city.
Firefighters quickly extinguished the fire and prevented any extension, discovering that it was actually in a ten-foot-deep trash pit that transients had been using.
No injuries were reported.
